Customers could be disconnected from the service if payments are not made.  Notification of delinquent status and the date the service is scheduled for disconnection will appear on the monthly billing statement. If the service is disconnected for nonpayment, the customer must pay all delinquent bills plus a reconnection charge to restore the service.  The customer should avoid making payments late in the working day.  (Consider department work loads to avoid an overnight without water.)  Please recognize that personal checks will not be accepted for the payment of delinquent accounts.

The Public Utilities Department does not want to disconnect anyone from water and sewer services. If you anticipate a problem making your payments, or have questions about your billing, please call 540-434-9959 and a customer service representative will be able to assist you.
