Customer Service
Each customer, new or transferring from another address, must sign a service contract. A $15 setup fee will be applied to each customer's first utility bill.

Shutting Off Water
If you are moving, selling, leaving for winter, or for some other reason you need your water turned off, be sure to call the Water Department with enough advance notice to ensure a scheduled time for the turn off. The Water Department will turn the water off at your curb stop, but the customer is responsible for winterizing the property if needed.
