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 using our new online web portal (see above for more information). Final meter readings can be done on Thursday free of charge. Other days will be subject to a $48.00 service fee.

Rates & Fees
New water and sewer rate structures will be implemented effective July 1, 2021. In addition to water and sewer charges being calculated based on consumption, a fixed monthly charge will be applied both for water and sewer based on the meter size of each meter installed. Previously, a fixed water fee (availability charge) was applied and computed based upon the assessed value of a property. This practice will be discontinued due to some concerns and new software limitations. Assessed property values are variable and dynamic since they rely on market conditions, which can vary based on geography. Meter size provides a stable metric and consistent rates for consumers. The new rate structure follows best practices for water and wastewater utilities that is more consistent with industry standards. The new structure also eliminates the monthly minimum use charges. This structure change will impact customers differently, with increases for some and decreases for others. Overall, this structure change is revenue neutral for the City and will provide more stability into the future.

Water Meter Maintenance
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.
