To start water service, a valid government issued picture identification must

deposit (if required) must be paid.
The credit score is obtained through the social security number. If

category of credit. An applicant with good credit will not be required to pay a
deposit. If the applicant does not provide a social security number or has poor
credit, they may be required to pay up
to a double deposit.
After establishing a satisfactory payment record, the District will
refund the guarantee deposit by crediting the customer’s account. If service is
discontinued before 24 months, the deposit will be applied
to the closing bill, and a refund checks her the balance or a water bill will be
mailed to the customer at his/her last known address.
Bills for water service are rendered at the end of each month. Payment is due
upon receipt and is late 21 days after the date of billing. An outside drop box
is available to make a payment at any time. Customer’s water service will be
turned off after written notice from the District if payment is not made within
35 days of the billing date.
