Residential Sewer Services

Residential customers are defined as any single family detached home.

What’s Involved in Connecting a New Service?

An application for service should be filed and all connection fees must be paid prior to the installation of any new sanitary sewer line. These fees are collected at the time the application is completed. A plumber’s permit cannot be issued until verification of a current bond is made and fees are paid.

Billing Policy

We must obtain the property owner’s name and we will only send bills to the property owner. The District recognizes the need for this procedure due to the fact than any and all unpaid charges will accrue against the property and may result in the District having to take action which would adversely affect the property owner and disrupt the tenant’s service. It is the decision between the owner and the tenant as to whom will be responsible for the payment of all charges.

 Billing Transfers and Changes

  1. To transfer property from one individual to another:
    If you wish to transfer property from one individual to another, we must have written confirmation of the transfer. A copy of the closing statement or transfer papers is acceptable.
  2. To transfer property at the time of a sale:
    The closing attorney should contact us prior to the sale of the property to insure that there are no outstanding balances or liens on the property. If the attorney contacts us they may give the new owners name and proposed closing date, however, the transfer will not be made until we receive a written confirmation of the actual sale of the property. We will record the name of the attorney, the new owner’s name, and any amounts quoted.
  3. To change legal name or mailing address:
    A written request must be submitted by the verified owner. This request can be in the form of a separate document or written on the space provided on the bill.

Returned Bills

Any bill returned to us by the United States Postal Service as undelivered due to an insufficient address or owners name, will be verified by one of our personnel by visiting the property.

The District understands that it is the decision between the owner and the tenant as to whom will be responsible for payment of all charges. The District recognizes the need for this procedure due to the fact that any and all unpaid charges that accrue on the property may result in the District taking action which would adversely affect the property owner and disrupt the tenants service.

Helpful Tips

Don’t pour grease or other foreign matter down the sewer. It is damaging to the equipment and causes backups and blockages in the lines, resulting in costly repairs both to the customers and to the District.

If you don’t have a back flow preventer valve installed in your sewer line, and damages occur due to a sewage backup into the home, the District may not be held responsible. At the homeowner’s expense, please have a plumber check your line.
