Water and Sewer Connections

Water and Sewer Connections

To turn on an existing connection, or for more information on water and sewer rates, billing, and payment options, please visit the Start Your Water Service.

For new connections, engineering personnel will assess the technical requirements and cost implications to connect to the County’s drinking water distribution system and advise applicants accordingly. Upon satisfaction of all the requirements and payment of the stipulated fee, a work order will be issued to install the new connection.

Drinking Water or Sewer Service Petitions

In areas where drinking water service or sewer service is currently unavailable, homeowners can petition the County to extend service to their homes. Once the petition is received, staff will review the area to determine if the service can reach the homes and will contact the homeowners.
If the conditions are favorable, a preliminary design will be completed for the extension and a package will be submitted to the Fulton County Board of Commissioners for approval of the petition. Upon approval, final design and installation can occur. During the process, a homeowners meeting is set up to explain the petition process, design impacts and construction process. Any easements that may be required from the petitioners are to be donations as part of the petition process.

The service petition forms and letters can be found below.  For more information, please contact:
