  • The day we mail the bill is the Statement Date. You have 20 days from the time we mail the bill to pay the bill before being considered delinquent. Payment must be received by the Late Date to avoid penalty.
  • Bills will be considered delinquent on day 21 (Delinquency Date) and a Termination Notice will be issued on that day. Payment must be made 10 days after the Term Notice issue date to avoid termination of water service.
  • If you own or are purchasing the property which we are servicing, you will have your security deposit plus interest refunded to you after we have received twelve (12) consecutive monthly payments on time. If you are renting the property, which we are servicing, the security deposit plus interest will remain with your account until you no longer reside at the property, at which time the security deposit plus interest will be credited to your final bill.
