Start New Water/Sewer Service Application:
A COMPLETED RENTAL AGREEMENT OR PROOF OF OWNERSHIP IS REQUIRED AT THE TIME OF ESTABLISHING UTILITIES. A $45.00 (non-refundable) service fee applies to establish service, even if the water is currently "on" at the property. In addition, a deposit is required for tenants at the time of service and the amount is based on credit. The City of Lakeport will pull a soft credit inquiry for all tenants listed on the rental agreement applying for utilities. Pulling a soft credit check WILL NOT impact your credit score. The deposit is refundable when the tenant moves out and is applied to the final bill. No phone calls will be accepted to establish service. Forms may be accepted by fax or email but payment must be submitted before the application is processed. Click HERE to download the form. DEPOSIT BASE: GREEN = $75.00 YELLOW = $150.00 RED = $250.00
