How to Apply
Any person desiring a water or sewer tap within the City should come to the Engineering Department located at 150 SE 1st St. After the fee has been paid, a work order is sent to the Water and Sewer Department for the tap to be constructed.
This process usually takes less than two weeks. After you have paid for the tap at the Engineering, Planning & Development Department you should go to our Water Billing office located at 120 E. Kaufman St. and set up an account. After the tap is made Water Billing will be notified so they can install the water meter.
The fees listed below are for standard water and sewer taps only. For larger tap fees please call (903) 784-9234.
