Step 1 – Application Form
The District requires a deposit at the time of application unless the Customer requests to have their credit ran and has a satisfactory score of 625 or above. (If credit is ran, a $10 credit check fee will apply and is due at the time application is made) The Application for Water Service is to be completed by the requester of service and signed by the owner of the property if the tenant is requesting service. An account setup charge of $35.00 is due at the time application is made.
Applications can be mailed or faxed. Customers must return signed application approving the credit check and the request for service together with a copy of a picture I.D. (i.e. current Driver License, State ID Card, military ID, etc.), a copy of the social security card, the application fee along with any other fees required to start service and the rental agreement if account is being established under the tenants name. If the information is returned by FAX, the original application must be received within 5 business days. No service will be started until the fees have been paid and/or the credit check has been completed. Please note: You can fax your service request documents, however we do not offer same day service on faxes as it can take up to 7 business days to process. Please call the office to verify that your fax was received.

Step 2 - Establishment of Credit
Rosamond Community Services District requires a deposit for services which will remain on file until the account is closed. In lieu of this requirement, the District can run a credit check (inquiry) to determine credit worthiness in which case the initial deposit may be waived. If credit is ran, a $10 credit check fee will apply.
CREDIT WORTHINESS - As established by the District, if you would like the District to run a credit inquiry, please fill out the bottom section of the Application for Service. We are unable to run credit inquiries on business or company names.
