Your water bill states which water system you are connected to. It is contained within the body of the document.
One may ask "why are we doing this?" The answer is quite simple and yet very useful. In familiarizing yourself with the system that you are served by can be helpful when determining if you are affected by a Boil Water Advisory.
We are here to help you by telephone, email or in person to answer your water and wastewater questions:
