CWA waives late penalty for Rainbow payment
Last updated 4/8/2021 at 4:05pm
The electronic payment the Rainbow Municipal Water District made to the San Diego County Water Authority didn’t process by the date it was due, so Rainbow was assessed a late penalty. The fault was in the electronic processing rather than Rainbow's lack of a payment attempt, so March 25, the SDCWA board unanimously approved a waiver of the penalty.
Rainbow purchased 700.5 acre-feet of water from the CWA during January 2021. Including fixed charges Rainbow’s payment to the CWA for that month was $1,299,620.70. The invoice was dated Feb. 9, and Rainbow’s payment was due March 15.
