How does a public bulk water station work?

Customers that draw water from the public bulk water stations need to apply for an account allowing them to obtain water from that source.

There is a $25 fee for each access card (fee refundable on return of card), a monthly service charge, plus a consumption charge.

The consumption charge is based on the amount of water you withdraw. When there is no consumption charge, no service fee is charged.

Billing and payments

How is bulk water billed

A separate utility account is set up for bulk water service. You will receive a statement for each month the bulk water service is used.

This statement includes a service charge and a consumption charge. The consumption charge is based on the amount of water you withdraw. When there is no consumption charge, no service fee is charged.

Payment due dates

Accounts must be paid in full by the due date to maintain a valid access card. The due date is approximately 30 days from the billing date.

A refundable security deposit may also be required if accounts are not paid by the due date.
