In order for BJWSA to begin water service at a location, the customers plumbing should be in working condition and all faucets and spigots in the off position. In the event that a water meter indicates that water may be on in the location and no one is available at the location, BJWSA will not be able to connect the water service and may not be able to return until the next business day. BJWSA will assume no responsibility for any damages resulting from water being turned on.
Commercial, multi-family, or subdivision requests for new connections must be made through BJWSA’s Engineering Department and in accordance with the Development Policy and Procedure Manual.
Single service residential requests for new connections are initiated through our website. New customers need to complete an availability request online. Within 7 business days we will determine if services are available and if so provide a quote of fees due including meter fees and capacity fees. Applicants are notified in writing if services are not available.
