Question 6: What happens to a past due account?
Payments for water/sewer bills should be paid by the due date shown on the bill. Payments received after the due date will incur penalty charges. Failure to pay by the due date subjects the water meter to shut off. The outstanding balance shall then be required to be paid for service to be restored, and a lock fee will be applied to the account. If you have provided the utility with a current telephone number you will receive a courtesy call to remind you that your account has an outstanding balance.
It is the property owner’s responsibility to ensure the contact information on the account is current in order to receive a courtesy call.
All unpaid balances for fees, rates, and charges due and payable for water, sewer, and reclaimed water service will become an automatic lien on the property as provided for in the special act that created the Collier County Water-Sewer District.
Question 7: Who do I call if I have a leak?
Collier County Public Utilities is not responsible for leaks that occur on the customer side of the meter or backflow device on private property. If you are unsure about who would be responsible for a leak, or to report a leak outside of your property or inside the meter box, call Utility Billing and Customer Service at (239) 252-2380 and select Option 3.
