ACH Debit Bill Payment Program

Beginning November, 2009 the Running Springs Water District and First Mountain Bank will provide Running Springs Water District customers with an option for bill payment known as the Automatic Payment Processing via ACH Debit program.

The Automatic Payment Processing via ACH Debit program allows Running Springs Water District customers, at their option, to pay monthly water/sewer bills on the first day of each month. This feature will automatically debit your Running Springs Water District account balance from your checking or savings account and deposit those funds into the Running Springs Water District account at First Mountain Bank on a monthly recurring cycle. Your water/sewer account will then be credited with the payment. You can pay multiple water accounts each month, or pay just one if you prefer. Enrollment is free to all Running Springs Water District property owners and tenants and you are not required to be a customer of First Mountain Bank to take advantage of this new program.

To enroll in the program customers first need to contact the Running Springs Water District to receive an application packet.  Once the District office receives your returned completed packet, you will be immediately enrolled into the program and scheduled for the following month’s automatic payment processing via ACH Debit. Your first automatic payment will occur on the first day of the month following your enrollment.  Please note, if the first day of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, the automatic payment will be deducted on the next business day.

To cancel automatic payment service customers must submit a written request to cancel the Automatic Payment Processing via ACH Debit to the Running Springs Water District. The Automatic Payment Processing via ACH Debit payments will cease upon receipt of your cancellation request.  This program can be cancelled at anytime during regular business hours. The recurring payment schedule will cease as of the date specified.

Please note, all payments returned as non-sufficient funds (NSF), will be assessed a $20.00 processing fee. This fee will be charged to your water/sewer account for collection.

The monthly water/sewer bills will continue to be mailed to the legal property owner, or to the leasing agent if directed by the property owner.
