Services can be obtained in the property owners' names; or, if the property is being leased, services can be obtained in the tenants' names.  Please note all persons listed as property owners or as tenants must complete and sign the water/sewer application.  

The applicants will need to provide the following information:

  1. Completed and signed application.
  2. If leasing the property, provide a copy of the current lease.  It is required that the water/sewer applicants' names are listed on the lease agreement as tenants at the property address and that the signatures of all tenants as well as the landlord/leasing agent are completed on the lease agreement.  In addition, the lease should indicate that the tenants are responsible for the water/sewer utility services.  

Applications for water/sewer service are accepted in person, via mail, e-mail or facsimile transmission.  Generally, it takes one business day to establish services; however, it can take longer if all requirements are not met.
