  • Payment agreements must be signed in person before 5:00 pm on the 10th day of the month.
  • One third (1/3) of the total amount owed is due at the time the payment agreement is signed.

  • Failure to pay past due agreement payments by the 20th day of each month will result in termination of water service without prior notification.
  • Water service will be terminated on the next business day after the 20th day of the month.
