We pro-rate your first bill for only the days you actually lived in your new home. Usually this means the Water portion of the bill is fairly small but many people are thrown off by the size of the Sewer charges. While water is billed for the previous two months, Sewer is actually billed ahead of time. This first bill catches you up into your cycle and your next bill will reflect a normal two-month period. What this means is that many people when moving out have a very small, or even non-existent, closing bill.

In 1995, Arlington's City Council enacted a New Customer Capital Surcharge for new connections with occupancy between June 15, 1995 and February 15, 1999. This means if your home was built during this period of time you will see the surcharges on your bill. The surcharges were given an expiration date of ten years from the time the home was first occupied. Surcharges are as followed:

You can take additional time to pay your bill as long as it is paid in full prior to the Shut-Off date on any reminders we send.

When you leave on an extended vacation, we can turn your water off for you until you return. This keeps you from having to pay the minimum charges while you are gone. It is always wise to call us a few days before you return so we can have it on for you by the time you get back. One week of Water & Sewer service costs you $15.28. The charge for turning on your water when you return is $18.00. Keep these figures in mind when deciding if it makes the most sense to disconnect your service for the duration of your trip.
