Establishing/Transferring an Account
New accounts and transfers of service are handled by our Billing Office.
New or existing customers wishing to transfer service to a new location are required to complete the New Service Application, and present a valid picture ID at the time of application. Rental customers are also required to show a copy of their lease or rental agreement. All accounts are charged a deposit for establishing water service, with the amount dependent upon whether you own or rent the property and the size of the water meter installed at the property – find out more here.
