Security Deposit
A refundable security deposit of $250 (for meters up to 2") is required to set up service. If service is disconnected due to late payment or non-payment the District will require an amount sufficient to have a total security deposit of $250, and this additional deposit must be paid before water service is reconnected. No interest shall be paid on any deposit.

You can pay your bill online, by phone at (512) 246-1400 or by mail.

Late Payment
A late payment charge of 5% of the unpaid balance will be due for any bill that is not paid on or before the due date. This charge will be assessed each month until the bill is paid in full.

If your residential water service is disconnected it will be reconnected only after you pay all current and past-due charges, plus a $100 administrative fee (if meter removed or not). An additional after-hours reconnect fee of $50 must be paid in order to receive same-day reconnection if payment is made after 2:00pm, on weekends or holidays.

If your residential wastewater service is disconnected the same reconnection conditions will apply. The wastewater reconnection fee is two times the cost to the District.

Returned Checks
The District charges a $30 penalty fee for any returned check. If your check is dishonored your account will be subject to all applicable late penalties and possible disconnection for non-payment.
