The purpose of this form is to request a variance in water budget. A variance would allow an additional budget of water greater than the standard amount SMWD uses for your single family residence. If you require a variance based on the criteria below, please complete this form and provide the required documents. Variances are subject to periodic review by SMWD.For more information about SMWD's rate structure, see the Water & Wastewater Rates page.
You must attach proof of residency for ALL household members, not just the additional members over the default value of 4 residents.
Proof must be pre-printed with current service address.
Each additional permanent resident will be allocated 55 gallons of water per day per billing period. Increased budget for additional occupants must be renewed annually from the original date of approval. Notifications will be sent.
Proof may be one of the following:
Irrigable area does not include building footprint or hardscape like driveways, patios, or sidewalks.
