 How to dispute your bill

If you dispute the amount charged, please contact our Customer Service Department at CustomerService@irwd.com or 949-453-5300 for an explanation. If you are still not satisfied, you must submit your complaint, or request for review, in writing to IRWD within 15 days of receipt of your bill. Your service will not be interrupted until the review has been completed and you have been notified of the District's decision. You will then be given an opportunity to pay the bill or make payment arrangements to avoid interruption of service.

 How to avoid interruption of service

 We will not interrupt your service for nonpayment of a bill if you establish to our satisfaction that you are financially unable to pay the bill in full and/or that interruption of service would result in a life-threatening situation, provided you agree to pay the past due bill in reasonable installments while keeping any future bills current. We may ask you to furnish proof from a licensed physician, public health officer, or social worker.
