Frequently Asked Questions
How do I set up a new service?
You can start a new service online or in person. We do not start a new service over the phone.
How Can I pay my bill online? You can pay here. You will need your Account # to pay as a guest and you will need your account number and your portal CID# to register online.
Am I responsible to pay my water bill if I do not receive it?
Yes, water bills are mailed in bulk at the local post office by the 30th of each month and due the next month on the 15th. If you do not receive your water bill, contact our billing department at (409) 883-4003 ext 2 for your current account balance.
How will I know if my account is scheduled for termination?
A Notice will be mailed out directly after your due date on the 15th. This letter will state the amount due and the date of termination, which is 10 days after your due date.
Why is my bill double what it usually is / What is a balance forward?
If your bill is not paid by the due date you could see 2 months on your utility bill. Check the top of your bill for a balance forward, that will be the past due amount that you can disregard if you have already paid the previous month's bill.

If my water service is disconnected due to non-payment when will the service be restored?
After termination, we have 36 hours to restore service. Typically we are able to get the water restored on the same day if the payment is made before 3 pm as long as there are no emergencies that come up in the course of business.
