Accounts that are disconnected due to non-payment of delinquent balances must pay the account in full in order to have service restored. By cash, credit/debit card or money order, checks will not be accepted. 

The Service Interruption fee is $25.00

We cannot guarantee immediate restoration of service upon payment. if your water service has been disconnected and you have made the necessary payments by 12:00 noon on the day of service interruption, every effort will be made to restore service the same day before 5 pm. Service for accounts that are paid after 12:00 noon on the day of service interruption may not be restored until the following business day. returned checks received as a result of trying to avoid service interruption will result in immediate disconnection of service without notice and a reconnection fee will be imposed. 

Note: Payment arrangements can be made in person or by speaking with a live representative by phone. Please be sure to speak directly to City Staff, in person or via telephone prior to disconnect day. Payment arrangements CANNOT be left via voicemail.
