Starting Service

In Person
We accept cash, check, or money order only.  We do not accept credit cards or debit cards.  Checks and money orders should be made out to ACC WBO.

To start water and sewer service in person, please bring a copy of your lease and a picture ID to the Water Business Office:
124 E. Hancock Ave.

You must pay a $30 water deposit and a $10 service fee to begin your water and sewer service. If you live in the urban service area, you will also be required to pay a deposit and a $10 service fee for trash collection. A customer service representative will tell you the correct deposit amount. 

By Mail
To start water and sewer service by mail, find out the amount of your deposit by first calling the Water Business Office at (706) 613-3500. Mail your deposit with a completed Water Service Request Form and a photocopy of your picture ID to:

ACC PUD Water Business Office

About Your Deposit
Once your deposit is received, water service can be provided by the next working day. Your deposit will be applied to your final bill when you move or no longer need service with Athens-Clarke County. However, after 24 months, you may request in writing to have your deposit applied to your account if you have a good payment history.
