****  GOVERNOR'S PUBLIC WATER SYSTEM ORDER  ****  

On March 31, 2020, an order was issued by the governor requiring that public water systems cease disconnecting services for reasons of non-payment, sighting that services still had to be paid.  This order was issued in the interest of public health to ensure all Ohioans had access to safe water for drinking and hygiene in attempts to stall the spread of COVID-19.

As the state has lifted the stay-at-home order and has re-opened businesses, the governor has revoked the order to abstain from shutting water off for nonpayment.  The revocation will be effective July 10, 2020.  As always, if a customer’s account is in jeopardy of termination for nonpayment, a “Final Notice Before Termination” will be issued fifteen days prior to a shut off occurring.

To avoid termination of services, plus having additional fees added to your account, any delinquent balance due should be paid immediately.  See the link below to make a payment now. (Posted 6/15/2020)
