City to Resume Water Shut-Offs, Late Fees for Non-Payments
On December 31, 2021, the State of California ended the water shutoff moratorium. Despite the state ending the moratorium, the City of Garden Grove continued providing water service to customers with delinquent accounts and waiving late fees, which will now end on Saturday, December 31, 2022.
Beginning Monday, January 9, 2023, the City of Garden Grove will reinstate water shutoffs, as well as late fees, on accounts that are delinquent for sixty (60) days or more, in accordance with the Garden Grove Water Services Discontinuation Policy.
