How do I establish a new residential water service account?
New residential accounts are established in person at the Revenue Division, 200 North Center Street, City Hall Addition. You will need a driver's license or other picture identification and printed proof of a social security number. We also require a copy of a lease agreement or a current rent receipt with your name and address. You will be required to pay a $100.00 deposit at the time of application. When your application has been processed, your water account will be activated by the next business day. If you have an outstanding water bill, you must pay this and a $100 water deposit.
How do I establish a new business water service account?
New business accounts begin by visiting our Inspections Division at 200 North Center Street, City Hall Addition. Businesses must receive a certificate of occupancy from the Inspections Division prior to applying for water service and a business license. Deposits begin at $100.00 and are dependent on the prior consumption at the given location. Federal identification numbers, local telephone numbers and correct billing addresses are required.
Where and how do I pay my water bill?
You may mail your check and payment stub to PO Box 1324, Charlotte, NC 28201-1324 or you may pay in person at the Revenue Division, located at 200 North Center Street, City Hall Addition. A drop box is located outside the front door of the City Hall Annex for your convenience. The City also offers the added convenience of bank drafting.

How do I transfer or terminate my water service account?
To transfer your service from one location to another, you must apply in person to the Revenue Division at 200 North Center Street, City Hall Addition. A $10.00 transfer fee and a possible deposit update must be paid prior to the account transfer. Account terminations may be handled by telephone by calling 919-580-4340. You must show your new lease and a picture ID to transfer service.  You may have up to 2 weeks to move in and out of each location.
What are possible causes of a high water bill?
Dripping or leaking faucets inside or outside of the residence may cause a high reading. Long running toilets will also cause water consumption to increase. Broken or burst water lines will increase water consumption. If there is no indication of these situations please call 919-580-4340 to request a re-read of your water meter.
