water or electric power to their own citizens or members.



11627.  Every contract made by the department for the sale of water,
use of water, water storage, electric power, or other service shall

or deliver water, use of water, water storage, electric power, or
other service under the contract.



11628.  The act of the department in ceasing on any default to
furnish or deliver water, use of water, water storage, electric
power, or other service under a contract shall not deprive the
department of or limit any remedy provided by the contract or by law
for the recovery of money due or which may become due under the
contract.
