Water Meter Readings

Meters are read on or near the 15th day of each month. Utility bills will be mailed on or before the 1st of each month and are due by the 10th.

  • For any utility bill not paid by the due date, a 10% penalty will be added.
  • If the bill is not paid by the 20th, water services will be terminated and a $25 reconnection fee will be added.
  • In the event we find the customer has tampered with the meter to access water after the services were terminated, the meter will be pulled or locked and an additional $25 lock-out fee will be added.
