DIABLO WATER DISTRICT ABSORBS
CREDIT CARD PROCESSING FEES
You asked, we listened.
Diablo Water District has heard our customer’s dissatisfaction with the credit card processing fees that went into effect on August 1, 2020. Since the integration of our new billing system, customers have paid a processing fee to cover the costs of using a credit card as their payment method. A Customer Satisfaction Survey was sent out in November 2020, and customers responded that the credit card fees caused them to stop using this payment method. This response, along with additional customer feedback over the phone, resulted in a proposal to have the District absorb all credit card processing fees.
At the District's Regular Board Meeting on May 26, 2021, the Board approved a new agreement to allow Diablo Water District to absorb all processing fees for credit card payments, effective July 1, 2021. As a not-for-profit public agency, we strive to keep our drinking water high-quality at the lowest possible price. We pride ourselves on transparency and value the feedback of our customers. Our team works hard to provide excellent customer service and assist our customers in saving money. We appreciate your feedback, as our customers are the heart of what we do.
