Frequently Asked Questions

I’m moving next month, how much notice will be needed to turn off my water services?

Please contact our office at (641) 684-4606 two working days prior to the day you would like to end your services. You may also contact the office if you are transferring services to a different property in Ottumwa.

I noticed that my water bill stated it was “estimated” instead of being based on an actual read this month.

Occasionally, we are unable to read your meter. This can happen for a variety of reasons but generally indicates to us that there is a problem with your meter and our billing clerk will try to reach you to avoid estimating your bill. When we are unable to reach you to look at the meter or unable to get an actual reading we will then calculate an estimate of your typical water usage.
