Delinquent Accounts & Returned Checks

Delinquent Accounts

Water bills are considered delinquent if unpaid for 60 days. Water bills that are 60 days overdue, and that are at least $40 outstanding, will result in water service discontinuation. To re-establish service, the customer must pay the outstanding account in full, including a $75 reconnection fee.

Returned Checks

A $20 service charge will be added to the water user’s account for all returned checks. If the check was used to pay a delinquent account, a 10-day shutoff notice will be sent and payment will be accepted only by cash, credit card, or money order.
