Terms and Conditions of Utility Service From Consolidated Utility District

I understand that I am entering into a contract for utility service with Consolidated Utility District, and understand that all persons, firms, or corporations having connections within the Districtís water, sewer and stormwater system shall pay any applicable deposit, monthly usage, and service charges. I also understand that residential sanitation charges are billed monthly on the utility bill and that all billings are due before the date indicated on each billing to avoid penalties.

I agree to make no claims against Consolidated Utility District for damage on account of the stoppage of the flow of water resulting from an accidental shut-off by Consolidated Utility District, when stoppage is necessary to make alterations, repairs or improvements by Consolidated Utility District or its agents, representatives, and/or contractors or due to an emergency. I shall keep all plumbing fixtures on the premises in good repair, shall promptly stop all leaks from such plumbing fixtures, and shall conserve water in time of water shortage. By using this Site, you agree to be bound by, and to comply with, these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, please do not use this site.

I agree to exercise reasonable diligence to protect the Districtís property on the premises. No one, but the Districtís agent or persons authorized by law, shall knowingly have access to the Districtís utility facilities or property, including and not limited to all components of the meter pit and the meter. In the event of any loss or damage to the Districtís property caused by or arising out of my carelessness, neglect, or misuse, the cost of making good such loss or repairing such damage shall be paid by the party named in the application.

I agree that if the bills or charges submitted by Consolidated Utility District are not paid by the service interruption date, the water service will be terminated (CUD Policy and Procedures, Policy # 065). The following provisions regarding non-payment will be applied as part of this contract:

  1. A penalty will be assessed against the non-paying customer on the amount due on the date indicated on the bill.
  2. Upon Customer's non-payment of a utility bill by the interruption date, water service will be disconnected by Consolidated Utility District.
  3. Water service will be reconnected by Consolidated Utility District upon payment of the utility bill and the service charge by Customer.

I understand that any payments returned as insufficient, which were applied to utility accounts, will be charged back to the account and will result in water disconnection if the charges due are not paid within the allotted time after notification. A returned item charge and a service charge may also be assessed.

I understand that if I have an amount due on a payment arrangement and my account is inactivated, such as a move out transaction, the payment arrangement and past due amount will be due immediately. If this balance is not paid, then services at the new address could be disconnected for non-payment.

I, the customer, agree to give notice to Consolidated Utility District when a change of occupancy takes place on any premises supplied by the District with water, wastewater, stormwater, and/or sanitation service. Notice thereof shall be given not less than one business day prior to the date of change by the outgoing customer. The outgoing customer shall be held responsible for all services rendered on such premises until such notice is so received by Consolidated Utility District and Consolidated Utility District has had reasonable time to discontinue the water and wastewater service. However, if such notice has not been received, the application of such a succeeding occupant for water, wastewater, stormwater or sanitation service will automatically terminate the prior account. Notwithstanding the above, the District will accept telephone orders, for the convenience of its customers, to discontinue or transfer water, wastewater, stormwater and/or sanitation service from one service address to another and will use all reasonable diligence in the execution thereof.  I understand the District will only complete service orders during normal business.  Any orders completed after hours may be subject to an overtime fee.  

I have read and understand the Terms and Conditions of receiving utility service from Consolidated Utility District and agree to abide by the same. I hereby affirm and verify under penalty of law that I am the individual named in the application and the social security number provided herein is my true and correct social security number, assigned to me by the federal government.
