What do I need to do to start water service?
The City of Cedar Park requires a Residential Application with a government-issued photo identification. A $100 deposit is assessed on the customer’s first months utility bill. The deposit may be waived if an acceptable letter of credit from a former utility company, such as gas, water or electric is submitted. The letter of credit can have no more than 1 late payment, no disconnects for non-payment, no returned items, and must be for the last 12 consecutive months, no exceptions. Service connection can be done Monday – Friday between the working hours of 8:00 am – 5:00 pm with 24 hour notice required. No service on holidays.

How is my sewer calculated?
The sewer rate is based on a 3-month consumption period. Once a year the City re-averages the winter months of December, January, and February to calculate the sewer charge for the year for a residence. Any resident can request in writing, once a year, to have their sewer re-averaged using 3 different consecutive months within the current year.
What do I do if I have a leak?
Detecting a water leak [PDF]
If there is a leak on your property, please call a professional plumber to locate and correct the problem. If the leak was under the ground, behind the wall, or under a slab, you may be eligible for a leak credit. You must submit in writing where you had the leak and copy of the plumber’s invoice within 6 months of the repair date.
If you notice a leak that is not on your property, please call the Service Center at 512-401-5550.
When is my deposit refunded?
After a year of good service, customers in good standing with no more than 1 late payment, no disconnects, and no returned items will receive a statement credit of their deposit. Otherwise, upon termination of your water service, the deposit on the account is applied to your final bill and any remaining credit will be sent back to you in the form of a check.
