PromisePay is an online service that makes it easy to pay off your total balance and become debt-free. PromisePay works with Cal Water and other utilities to offer flexible, interest-free payment plans for your debt.
Cal Water is offering flexible payment plans through PromisePay to help you repay your past-due balance in the way that works best for you. Some customers may also receive grants through the federal Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program to pay part of their past-due balance, which would reduce the remaining payment plan balance after the grants are received.
Cal Water residential customers who have past-due balance can use this program. All residential past-due customers with a balance of at least $50 are eligible for a payment plan. Only residential customers will be eligible for PromisePay payment plan.
Times are tough, and many are still suffering from the effects of COVID-19 and now the economic downturn. Cal Water has partnered with PromisePay to offer payment plans that are more flexible and meet customers’ individual needs, in order to help customers get back on their feet and protect themselves from service disconnections.
