A: The most likely reason for a high bill is an increase in consumption or a leak. In preparation of your bill, we compare your current water usage with the most recent and historical information. If consumption is unusually high, we have the meter read a second time before the final bill goes out. If the meter reader believes that the customer may have a leak, a notice is left informing the customer of a potential problem.

A: Customers will receive three notices, the bill, a delinquent notice and a hand-delivered forty-eight hour turn-off notice.

Your bill is mailed out and is due and payable upon receipt. If not paid by close of business on the 20th day of your billing month, you will be mailed a delinquent notice advising when payment must be received to avoid termination of your service. Approximately 12 days after the delinquent notice is mailed, a forty-eight hour door hanger will be hand delivered. The forty-eight hour shut-off notice informs the customer that if the delinquent bill is not paid by the close of business on the date indicated on the notice, service will be shut off.
