COVID-19 Information 

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) AND YOUR DRINKING WATER SYSTEM

CDC rendition of the coronavirus

In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Vista Irrigation District (District) lobby is temporarily closed as a precautionary measure.  District business and operations are being performed as usual.  Water quality and supplies are not affected by COVID-19, and remain safe.

DRINKING WATER SAFETY

The final process of water treatment includes disinfection, which inactivates viruses, including the coronavirus.  Water is tested throughout the District’s system on a daily basis to ensure it maintains a consistent disinfectant residual level. Our water meets all stringent state and federal drinking water requirements.

WHAT WE’RE DOING

You may continue to see Vista Irrigation District employees working in the field as we maintain and operate our essential systems to provide water service to you.  

Customer Service representatives will still be available over the phone during normal business hours to assist customers. We will continue to provide reliable, high quality services. 

Vista Irrigation District has temporarily suspended water shut offs for nonpayment and late fees will be waived. The District will continue to read meters and generate bills during this time. We encourage you to make every attempt to continue to pay your water bills as normal; outstanding balances for all accounts will be due when the temporary suspension expires. If you are unable to pay your bill due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, please contact us during normal business hours at (760) 597-3120 to discuss payment arrangements.

You may continue to use our drop boxes (in the parking lot or near the entrance to our lobby). You may also view all payment options available online by visiting https://www.vidwater.org/pay-my-bill.  Phone payments can be made by calling (800) 272-9829 (jurisdiction code is 1564).
