5. How do I change the name on an account?

Change of ownership. Before we can change the name on any account, we require either a Warranty Deed, Quit Claim Deed or another legal document.

6. Can an account be changed into a renter’s name?

The District does not allow anyone but the legal owners to change the billing address for water/sewer bills because unpaid charges have the potential to become a tax lien on the property owner. We strongly  recommend that landlords bill the charges to the renters as part of the rent. Delinquent bills become the owners responsibility.
 

7. I’m experiencing low or no water pressure, who should I call?

During 8 am – 5 pm, Monday - Friday, please call our District office at (970) 349-7575 to report any interruption in service. After hours, please call (970) 209-5768.

8. I’m having a sewer backup! What should I do?

Call a Plumber. 99% of all sewer backups are service line related and not the responsibility of the District. If a plumber determines the backup is caused by a blockage in the main line – contact our office immediately at (970) 349-7575 or (970) 319-2628 after hours.

10. A service technician just told me that our water or sewer service line is broken. Who’s responsible for the repair?

MCBWSD is responsible for only the main lines; the service line is the responsibility of the property owner. The service line does not end at the property line, asphalt edge, or sidewalk but extends to the connection with the main line within the street, right-of-way, or easement.
