Applying for Service
This application form is used to change service information or to transfer billing information from one owner to the next when the property is sold. A tenant customer requesting that the utility bill for the leased property be put in the tenant's name must have the landlord sign as well, or the form will be returned. Under all circumstances the property owner remains responsible for the payment of any and all municipal utility charges for the property. If the Application for Service has not been received, General Services will use the property owner's name and address obtained from the Real Estate Assessment Department of the City of Concord to bill for municipal utility charges.
Final Bill / Transfer Service
Request a final bill or transfer your service to a new customer. Final meter readings can be done on Thursday free of charge. Other days will be subject to a $44.00 service fee.

Water Meter Maintenance
Water Meter Reading Device Exchange
As part of an ongoing initiative to maintain and upgrade the City of Concord’s water meters, meter technicians will be visiting Concord water customers in phases to exchange water meter reading devices. We are actively completing this change out with water customers that have outdated devices. The upgrade is at no additional cost to the customer, but is necessary to keep technology up to date to ensure accurate utility bill readings and to provide optimal customer service. If a customer is not around during a visit from a meter technician, a door tag will be left instructing the customer to please call the Utility Billing Office to make an appointment for the replacement. The change out can be completed as quickly as 5 to 30 minutes, depending on meter conditions. It may take a while for meter technicians to reach each customer in need of an exchange, so patience is appreciated as this upgrade will be completed in phases due to limited resources. Some water customers already have the new reader installed and will not be receiving a visit at all. If customers do not receive a visit or door tag from the City of Concord, then meter technicians have either not been to that area yet or the meter does not need an upgrade. The City of Concord is appreciative of the cooperation of water customers to help keep service in optimal condition.
Routine Meter Maintenance
Water meters and reading devices are owned by the City of Concord, but the plumbing and pipes connected to the meter are owned by the property owner. There are approximately 12,000 service customers with water meter sizes ranging from 5/8" through 8" constructed of either engineered polymer, stainless steel, or lead-free brass. All water meters feature a register and low-flow indicator that can be read by the customer as well. Meter technicians continuously test, exchange, and upgrade residential and commercial water meters and meter readers for optimum customer service and accurate utility bills. The City of Concord uses AMR (Automated Meter Reading) to automatically collect consumption and status data from water meter devices.
