Making The Connection
In order for service to be connected or reconnected, someone must be at the residence during a time span specified at time payment of deposit is made or past due bill is made and this individual must have access to the inside of the structure.
Times For Service Connect Or Reconnect
- Morning Schedule: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
- Afternoon Schedule: 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Should no one be at the structure at the specified time for service to be connected, there will be an additional charge of $15 added the first bill and for each subsequent trip until service is connected.
The meter will be monitored and no more than 40 gallons of water will be allowed to pass through the meter before a technician will shut service off.
