Application For Water and/or Sewer Service

To receive service, an Application for Water and/or Sewer Service (PDF) needs to be completed and signed at least 24 hours prior to the service start date. There is a fee of $30 to transfer the account, which may be paid at the time of sign up for service or added to the first month’s bill. In addition to the transfer fee, tenants are required to pay deposits of $60 for water service and $40 for sewer service, if available (deposits are required to be paid prior to startup of service, cash or check only).
