Connection & Disconnection

Please read the entirety of this page before completing your connection or disconnection form.

To Connect Utilities

  • If the water service has been turned off prior to your service start date you will need to be at the service location when the water service is turned back on.
  • If you are making an in-town move, your new address will have a different account number from your old address.
  • Submitting a utility application for your new address will not disconnect your previous address. You must submit a disconnect request to close the account you are moving from.
  • After submitting your utility application, we will not contact you unless we have problems processing your request or if a deposit is required. 

To Disconnect Utilities

  • Selling your home? Utility services are usually needed for the final walk-through. Please check with your real estate agent prior to scheduling your disconnection date.
  • If you need to change your disconnection date please call our office at (919) 362-8676 no later than 11:00 am on the originally scheduled date. 
  • Please leave your garbage and recycling containers for the next occupant. A fee is charged for missing containers.
  • Bank Draft Customers: Your final bill payments are not drafted.

Please call the Utilities Department at (919) 362-8676 if you have any questions.

Residential Deposits

Depending on your credit history a deposit may be required. The standard residential deposit is $200 which includes all utility services. For residential water only customers the deposit is $50.00. Once a utility application has been submitted we check the applicant’s credit history. If the applicant’s credit history meets our requirements the deposit is waived. If the applicant’s credit history warrants the need for a deposit, the deposit must be paid in full before utility services are connected. Good credit for a residential customer is defined as 12 months with no more than 2 late payments. 

Deposit Returns

Deposits are eligible for refunding after a customer has established good credit with the Town. Refunds are not automatic, the customer must request a refund. Refunds are applied to the utility account and any remaining credit may stay on the account to cover future charges or it may be refunded by check. If a deposit is held on an account at the time services are terminated, the deposit will be applied to the unpaid balance and a refund check issued for the remainder.
