Request for Proposals – Professional Auditing Services

Issued: May 10, 2024

Proposal Deadline: June 10, 2024 5:00 pm (PST)

MOWD Request for Proposals Auditing Services 5-2024

Water Status:

The CA Division of Drinking Water groundwater well permit prevents the District from pumping our groundwater wells when surface water is within 150 feet of the well. Due to recent storms, surface water is too close to our wells for us to pump, so we had to transition over to our Casitas Water connection on February 9, 2024. March 13,2024 the District was back on it’s own wells, however, on April 2, 2024 due to more rain activity, the wells had to be turned back off and the connection to Casitas turned back on. As of April 17, 2024 the District is back on its wells.

EPA Lead & Copper Revised Rule

The EPA is requiring all public water utilities (including Meiners Oaks) to submit a water service line inventory in order to document any lead service lines owned by either the utility or the customer. Lead was banned by the federal government in 1988, so if your home was built post-1988 we know that the line could not be lead.
You can help Meiners Oaks comply with the EPA-mandated Lead & Copper Revised Rule by identifying the type of water line you have coming into your home. Any services that are not self-identified will have to be dug up by the utility in order to identify the line material. If you have any questions please call the office at 805-646-2114.

Financial Assistance Programs

    • California Low Income Household Water Assistance Program: https://csd.ca.gov/waterbill
      • What is LIHWAP? LIHWAP offers a one-time payment to help you pay your water or wastewater bills. The size of a benefit can vary depending on the balance of the household’s residential water and wastewater bills. In addition, program participation is limited to households receiving services from water and wastewater providers enrolled in LIHWAP to receive the payment of assistance benefits (MOWD is enrolled). Households that qualify for LIHWAP could reduce their water or wastewater charges, by up to $2,000.
      • How is LIHWAP funded? LIHWAP is funded by the federal government and administered by the CA Department of Community Services and Development. CSD works with local community-based service providers to help low-income households pay down their outstanding water and wastewater utility bills.
      • When can I apply? Eligible households with residential water or wastewater bills can begin applying for LIHWAP assistance in June 2022. The program is scheduled to end in December 2023.
      • How do I apply? Households can apply for LIHWAP assistance through a local LIHWAP service provider. Eligibility for LIHWAP services can vary depending on income, water system participation (MOWD is an approved utility provider), place of residence, and other factors. Households whose utility payments are included in their rent may also be eligible for LIHWAP. Contact your local LIHWAP service provider to learn more about how to apply.
