Frequently Asked Questions

How could I have used this much water?

You may not have - the numbers on your meter may have been transposed or hard to read. You could possibly have a leaky toilet or faucet that's difficult to detect. Just call the office and we'll work with you to solve the problem.

My bill is past due can I get an extension?

Please contact our office and a one-time extension per a 12 month period can be extended to you for extenuating circumstances.

What do I do if I am experiencing low pressure?

Check your meter and the surrounding area for possible leaks. Next, call our office and report low pressure for your area.

Why do I have a previous balance when I know I sent in my payment?

We may have received it after the due date or we may not have received it at all. Call our office and we will help you solve the problem.

Why is my water discolored?

A repair could have been completed recently allowing air to enter the line, causing the milky look. It should resolve itself within a couple of hours. If not please contact our office.

How much is the deposit for water connection?

The deposit amount is $125.00 per account.

Do I get my deposit back when I have the service disconnected?

If I move to another address in Mount Olive, can I transfer my previous deposit toward the new account?

No, every account requires a new deposit before service will be turned on.

Can I pay my water bill online?

Not at this time. You can pay your bill via mail, in person, the drop box or automatic draft.
