The water bills are mailed on the last day of the month.  The bill is due by the 15th of the month.  After the 15th there is a 10% late fee.  This allows for a 10 day grace period.  The last day to pay the bill is the 25th of the month.

All bills not paid by the 25th are subject to disconnection on the 26th or any day thereafter.  If your service is disconnected, it will cost $70 plus the past due water bill to be reconnected.  Hours for reconnection are 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday only. 

There will be a $50.00 NSF check fee for any returned checks or auto-draft payments.


LMPWA Water Rates effective September 15, 2023

Water cost is not included in Meter charge. See the table below for meter size and charges. Water cost is $11.00 per 1,000 gallons prorated. Example: If you use 1500 gallons divide 1500 by 1000 = 1.50. Then multiply 1.50 x $11.00= $16.50 which would be your water cost. Then you need to add on the charges in the table below according to your meter size.
