LWC began collecting service deposits in February 2005. A $50 deposit is now required for:
- All new LWC customers
- Any previous bad debt or bankruptcy customer
- Any LWC customer disconnected due to non-payment within the last three years of service
The deposit may be waived if a customer provides a letter of good credit from a previous water utility or if payments are automatically withdrawn from the customer’s bank account.
If the customer has a returned check during the first 3 years of service or cancels automatic bank withdrawal, a service deposit will be charged.
If service is maintained for 3 years or the account is closed, the deposit will be refunded.
