Customers may make application for water service in person at Pierson Town Hall, 116 W. 1st Avenue, with the necessary deposit and hookup fee as required. It is mandatory that all houses within the Pierson town limits be hooked into the water system or pay the monthly availability fee. The following information is needed:

  • Owner or renter's name
  • Service address
  • Driver’s license number
  • Documentation of rental (lease) or ownership (proof of purchase)
  • Deposit
  • Completed Water Account Application

Payment in full of any previous balances due may be required prior to establishing new service.


A security deposit is required on residential and commercial accounts. Customers who have tenants are required to place a deposit on all new accounts. The Water Account Application must be completed. If the property is sold, or a tenant vacates, deposits are returned after any and all monies due have been satisfied. The deposit may be applied toward monies due and the remainder, if any, will be refunded to the customer at the forwarding mailing address supplied.


Meters will be read on the 20th of every month (or first working day thereafter). For billing purposes, readings are rounded and consumption is billed in whole thousands of gallons.


The rate structure for utility water accounts is a combination of a monthly availability fee and water consumption charges. The monthly availability fee is a fixed charge that is billed monthly regardless of occupancy or usage. The consumption charge varies depending on the amount of water registered at the meter. The first 2,000 gallons of water consumption is included in the monthly availability fee; thereafter, additional charges are based per water usage. For current rates, please see our Residential Customers or Commercial Customers pages.


​Payment is due upon receipt but we allow up to the 15th day of the following month (or first working day thereafter) to avoid a late fee. It will be considered delinquent if not paid by that date. Payments will be accepted in cash, money order, or personal check. Credit and debit cards are accepted but will be charged a service fee by our third-party utility billing provider.

A charge will be assessed for any returned payment. A week’s notice is provided to satisfy the returned payment and related charges prior to disconnection of service. This notice is provided on the first returned payment only. Subsequent returned payments will result in immediate disconnection of service without notice. Once service has been disconnected for a returned payment, the full balance on the account must be paid, including any fees, in cash or by money order.


Non-payment by the due date will result in a late charge penalty equal to 10% of the bill. Non-payment within 60 days from the due date will result in the water being turned off; it will not be re-connected until all past due charges have been fully paid, including a $25.00 reconnection fee.


In the event you do not receive your utility bill notice, please contact us at (386) 749-2661. Failure to receive a bill notice does not relieve the customer from payment obligation nor charges for late or delinquent payments.

Frequently Asked Questions

My water usage seems high. How could this be possible?

There is the possibility that you have a leak in your water line or inside your home. For example, a leaking or running toilet or faucet can be difficult to detect but still use a substantial amount of water. It is also possible that the meter was misread -- transposed numbers and hard-to-read meters sometimes occur. Please contact Utilities to speak with us about your concerns.

My bill is past due. Is it possible to get an extension?

A one-time extension for extenuating circumstances may be discussed by contacting Utilities.

What should I do if I am experiencing low water pressure?

Check your meter and the surrounding area for possible leaks. If you cannot locate a leak, please call Utilities and report low pressure for your area.

Why is my water discolored?

A repair could have been completed recently, allowing air to enter the line and causing a milky or discolored look. If you are concerned about the appearance of your water, please contact Utilities.
