Deposit amounts are based on meter size. Most new residential accounts require a $110 deposit and $35 account activation fee which must be paid in advance. Please have the correct property address along with a US Government photo ID, and proof of residency (closing deed, settlement statement, or lease signed by the property owner).

If you are the owner of rental property, a new account will be established in your name after each vacating tenant's service termination date. You will be billed for charges associated with the account until a new tenant requests service.

Once connected to the system, the customer is obligated to pay a base facility fee for service availability whether or not water is actually used.


New customers must pay a deposit before service is initiated. The deposit does not prevent termination of service due to non-payment.

Your deposit will be credited to your water utilities account after 12 months if:

  • You have not received more than one past due bill notice during the 12-month period
  • You have maintained continuous utility service for 12 months without any delinquent turnoffs
  • You have not had an uncollectable payment during the 12-month period

Customers who have been disconnected twice for non-payment or have submitted an uncollectable payment will be subject to an additional deposit requirement.

Deposits do not accrue interest.


Upon Service Activation, the Customer will be billed and is obligated to pay minimum monthly fees for service availability, whether or not consumption has occurred. The minimum monthly fees, identified as Base Facility Fees and Customer Account Fees, are necessary to recover the ongoing expenses required to keep service available to the Property. Accordingly, upon discontinuance of service to a Property, these minimum monthly fees will continue to accrue (excludes permanent disconnects). Failure to pay these fees within sixty (60) days may result in a Claim of Lien being filed on the Property. The Department will endeavor to provide service in perpetuity as long as the Customer adheres to the rules stated herein and as may be revised, and maintains his billing account in a current paid status.
