Water Department Billing Information

Due Date / Late Fee
Water bills are mailed on the 1st of each month.  The due date is the 15th of the month.  Any bill unpaid after the 15th receives a 10% late fee.

Delinquent Account
An account is considered delinquent if not paid by the due date.  A second notice will be sent around the 23rd of the month and payment will be due 7 days later.  If the account is unpaid by the due date stated on the second notice, water service will be terminated.  A $50 turn-on fee is charged to reinstate the service.

Returned Check Policy
If the charges for the water bill are not paid due to a check returned by the bank for non-payment for any reason, a notice of the returned check will be sent informing the account holder of the dishonored check and a $25 returned check charge will be added to the account.  If the bill remains unpaid due to the returned check, water service to the property will be terminated on the date stated in the notice.  If the charges for a delinquent account are not paid due to a check returned by the bank for non-payment for any reason, water service will be terminated immediately without a notice being sent.  If water service is terminated for non-payment for any reason, the $50 turn-on fee will apply.

Water Service Termination
IF WATER SERVICE IS TERMINATED AS A RESULT OF DELINQUENCY OR NOTICE OF INSUFFICIENT FUNDS, payment must be received by 3 p.m. in order for service to be reinstated on the same day.
