Service Deposits

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be waived if a customer provides a letter of good credit from a previous water utility or if payments are automatically withdrawn from the customer’s bank account.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.
