Residential Water & Sewer Tap

The process to request a new residential water and sewer tap takes only a few steps if the tap request is for property inside City limits. Sewer tap requests for property outside City limits must include a Waiver of Annexation and a site plan.

If you want to put existing water service in your name, please use the move-in form, move-out form or transfer service form.
