Application for Residential Water Service

For each new residential service connected to the water distribution system for domestic service there is a ¾" meter assembly charge or residential tap fee of $120.00 for a short service or $200 for a long service (road bore), a $20.00 service charge, and a minimum service deposit of $50.00 for home owners and $90.00 for rental properties. For any service connected in an area requiring a Contribution-in-Aid of Construction to receive service, the Contribution-in-Aid of Construction will be determined by the cost of that specific area/development and must be paid along with any new service connection fees to receive service. For any additional residential service connection, lawn sprinkler/irrigation service connection or services larger than ¾", the meter assembly or service connection charge is based on the actual cost to install the requested service. Lawn sprinkler/irrigation service connections are required to have an approved Reduced Pressure Zone Assembly backflow preventer with Thermal/Weather Protection installed.

Line Extension Application

For requests to extend water service to a property or development where water service is not currently available, the requesting party (applicant) is required to submit a completed Line Extension Application and a $500.00 application fee. Be sure to include all information requested on the application. After receiving your completed Line Extension Application and payment, Louisiana Water Company will develop a "preliminary" construction and service cost estimate for the applicant's review. At that time, if the applicant decides to move forward with the project, they must enter into a Line Extension Agreement and remit 10% of the estimated project cost. We will then develop formal engineering plans and specifications for submittal to all regulatory agencies for approval, develop bid packages and solicit competitive bids for the project. After we receive the bids, we will provide that firm pricing for consideration and final approval. To initiate the construction work order for the project, the applicant must pay the total balance due less the 10% estimated project cost payment and the $500.00 application fee payment previously submitted. Once payment is received and upon receipt of all regulatory approvals, we can award the contract and issue the notice to proceed to initiate the installation of the required infrastructure.
