A deposit may be required to establish service with the City of Modesto. Based on guidelines provided by the State of California, a deposit is not to exceed three times the average monthly bill for the property address.

The deposit shall be applied to the closing bill upon the discontinuation of services and any remaining credit will be refunded. The Residential deposit is $200 and the Commercial deposit is based on average monthly billing of location.
