Are you a current or former customer 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.
Usually, EMWD attempts to locate the claimant’s current address and contact those customers, but sometimes those efforts are unsuccessful.
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. EMWD goes beyond the public notice requirement by posting the complete current listing of unclaimed monies on its website and continuously updates it throughout the year.
EMWD’s Board of Directors is tentatively scheduled to vote on January 19, 2022, to transfer any eligible unclaimed monies to EMWD’s general fund.
To view a listing of unclaimed monies, please log on to www.emwd.org/unclaimed-monies. Customers may complete and submit the form online to file a claim for funds published on EMWD’s website.
