New customers need to fill out an application for water, sewer and refuse service pdf.
A deposit and/or a business license and an IRS form W-9 pdf may also be required.

Per Santa Monica Municipal code 7.12.130 a deposit or a letter of credit from another utility is required from new customers. A deposit may not be required if you have had a utilities account in good standing with the City within the past twelve months. Please contact our office for the amount. You may pay the deposit with cash, check, or credit card. The deposit is returned after one year as a credit on your bill, or refunded if you move before a year's time.
