To start new service or transfer existing service, the customer financially responsible for the account must apply for the account online, by phone, or in-person. All applicants must provide the following:
  • Valid drivers license or government issued photo ID 
  • Copy of rental license agreement (if not the homeowner)
  • Deposit: $159 ($51 water, $66 sewer, $42 trash). This deposit is typical for a house, where all three services are provided. Most apartments have a deposit of $117, as we only provide water and sewer.
    • In lieu of deposit, a current letter of credit from another utility provider showing 12 months of continuous service without penalties or discounts may be provided
  • Payment of all prior outstanding bills 

Online - Complete this form and return it by email. 

Phone - Call 573-339-6322 and provide your information. You must be able to email, mail or fax your ID and lease (if renting). 

Cancelling service may be done by phone or in person.
