Water Shutoff Notification and Water Shutoff Information
Water Shutoff Notification 
If a letter of notification is sent out regarding a water shut-off for your residence, there will be a 5% late fee added to your final bill for that billing cycle.  With this 30 day extension, your payment MUST be received by the last day of this extension (February, May, August and November).    We will not be able to provide another extension after this late payment. 

Water Service is Turned Off

If water service is disrupted, there is a $25.00 turn on fee that will be added to your bill.  Bills must be paid in full before service will be turned on.  Please do not call for a further extension because the extra 30 days is all that will be granted.  Monies need to be paid by 10:00 AM of the morning of your notified shut off date.   Other Options If it is easier for you, you can make payments throughout the billing period.
