The water department handles all of the billing for water, wastewater, and sanitation.
To turn on new service at a residential home that is currently connected to the Water and Sewer System there is a $100 deposit required. This deposit can be paid in installments of at least $50 to turn on then $25 and $25 are added to regular water bills. Renters may be required by their landlords to pay the entire deposit upfront.
Homes that are not connected to either the Water or Sewer system are required to be platted before new service can be provided to them. Please contact the Building Inspector at (620) 697-2171 for more information about this process.
