Application for Water Service
New home owners are required to pay a Utility Deposit when filling out their Water Service Application Form. For your convenience you can print the form online and mail it in to the Village Hall at the address listed above. Please do not send cash through the mail. The utility deposit is returned to the home owner when one of the two conditions occurs: (1) Eight billing cycles (or 2 years) have passed without any late penalties being charged to your account or (2) The home owner sells the property, in which case the deposit is deducted from the final bill. In the event that the final bill is less than the deposit the remaining balance will be returned to the home owner. As of January 15, 2013, the Village of Carbon Cliff requests your Social Security Number when filling out an application for water service.

Contesting the Charges on your bill
If after you’ve talked to the Water Department you still don’t agree with the charges that appear on your bill, you may submit in writing a request to have your bill reviewed by our “Public Works Hearing Committee”. The committee will then review your bill and inform you in writing of their decision. A meeting with you may be required before a decision is reached.
