Important Note

You do not have to be present when the water is connected; however, make sure that all faucets or water-related appliances on the property are completely turned to the off position. Our service techs will verify the meter when turning the water on. If the meter shows any sign of active consumption, they will leave the water off. If your water was left off due to “water running inside”, you will need to call Utility Billing customer service when you are able to be at the location or once you have shut off the open faucet(s). Please call: 940.393.0200.
