How do I open and close a water utility account as a tenant or renter?

Water, sewer, and stormwater services are directly associated with the property. Services that can be liened must remain in the name of the property owner. While tenants are unable to place the account in their name or establish a Customer Connect account under the name of the owner, you can make a one-time payment using the bill information on Customer Connect. Landlords can also fill out an Property Certification Form to have the bill or a bill copy mailed directly to you.
