Your water meter is read on or near the 29th of each month and the bill mailed on or near the 7th of the following month. It is due and payable upon receipt and is ALWAYS past due after the 28th unless the date is a weekend or holiday, in which case the due date is extended by one business day. Payment is then considered past due if not received by the next business day and will be assessed a 10 percent late fee.
TERMNATION OF SERVICES
If payment is not made within 3 days of the PAST DUE date, a termination letter is sent stating the amount that must be paid by a stated termination date. You may also choose to have this termination notice sent to your email address specified in your online account.
Water service will be terminated if payment is not received by the stated termination date. Once service has been terminated (regardless of whether or not it has been physically terminated), an administrative reconnect fee of $40.00, an additional $100.00 deposit (up to a maximum of $500.00), and all delinquent and current charges must be paid before services will be restored. There is an additional charge of $35 for reconnections requested after 2 pm if this request is for the same day that all other restitution payments are made.
