District Posts List of Unclaimed Money

By on January 20, 2020

Attention current and former customers of Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD). You may be entitled to unclaimed money. Each year, EMWD posts a list of unclaimed monies, which are typically refunds associated with the closing of water accounts, water efficiency rebates or other fees.

EMWD attempts to locate the current address and contact these customers and developers, but those efforts are sometimes unsuccessful due to the lack of a forwarding address, companies closing, or other reasons. In addition, EMWD performs a search of its customer database to see if the customer has a current active account where the unclaimed money can be applied.

State laws require these unclaimed funds be published in a local newspaper of record. After three years, any remaining unclaimed money may be transferred to EMWD’s general fund. A complete list of unclaimed funds is available on EMWD’s website.

To view a listing of unclaimed monies, please log on to https://www.emwd.org/unclaimed-monies. Customers may complete and submit the form online or download it and submit it in hard-copy format to claim an amount shown.

EMWD’s Board of Directors is tentatively scheduled to vote on January 22, 2020, to transfer any eligible unclaimed monies to EMWD’s general fund.

Eastern Municipal Water District is the water, wastewater service and recycled water provider to approximately 839,000 people living and working within a 555-square mile service area in western Riverside County. More information can be found at www.emwd.org.
