- Your billing will begin as soon as your service is initiated. The first billing will be prorated over the number of days the service was active. Charge will include water volume usage, plus water and wastewater base charges, plus minimum volume charge of 6,000 per month for wastewater. See Winter Averaging or our Rate Order for details.
- Contact us anytime you have questions or concerns regarding your utility-side plumbing or water quality.
- Please do not attempt to tamper with LMUD’s water meter or use LMUD’s water cutoff valve. If you do not have a customer-side shut off valve, you can have one installed by a licensed plumber.
- We do not cover sprinkler maintenance or general plumbing concerns inside your home.
Upfront Application Fees
These fees must be received before service can be initiated. Please see our Rate Order for current fees or give us a call.
All customers with an existing water meter must pay a nonrefundable Service Fee, which is due at the time of submittal of an Application and Service Contract.
Customers may avoid the need for a security deposit if they have 12 months of previous good credit with us on file or are able to supply us with a letter from another utility company on its letterhead stating satisfactory credit history for the previous year. Note: This balance is automatically refundable after 12 months of timely payments or a termination request (whichever comes first) after the last meter reading.
Your bill will be mailed and/or e-mailed (depending on the preferences you stated in your Service Contract) every two months. It is considered late after the Payment Due date. A penalty is added for all late payments. If service is terminated, a non-payment/reconnection fee must be paid in full to reestablish service. Please see Rate Order for details.

Wastewater / Grinder Pumps
Most of our In-District customers are on our public sewer system using a gravity system with no components, other than a sewer line, on the property. Other customers have a septic tank, which is regulated by the LCRA and maintained at the customer’s expense. We are in the process of implementing our Out of District Wastewater (ODWW) Project, offering customers in our Out-Of-District coverage area the option to connect to a public sewer system instead of being connected to a septic system. This option will require the addition of a grinder pump system (low-pressure sewer system) on the customer’s property. For questions about the project, please contact Stephanie Threinen, our Public Information Liaison at (512) 261-6222 ext. 175 or by e-mail at [email protected]
- All wastewater customers should take care with what is flushed or disposed of down their drains! Flushable wipes and F.O.G. (Fats, Oils, and Grease) clog pipes. Please throw them in the trash.
- Customers with a grinder pump should be familiar with maintenance considerations: System Maintenance Guidelines
- Maintenance of a grinder pump is included in the wastewater base charge for accounts that have them. If you have any issues with your grinder pump system, please contact us to have it repaired.
New Construction/Remodels/Pool Installs/Irrigation Installs
For customers with new construction, remodels, pool installs, irrigation system installs, or other new installs that require plumbing or water services, we have a few more guidelines (and fees) that need to be followed (and paid) before we can issue permits and/or make connections to our water and wastewater services.
- All applicants adding water or wastewater service need to submit an ⇒Application and Service Contract and pay applicable upfront fees assessed to all new customers (even if they are the existing customer).
- Complete and Submit (after issuance, permit must be visibly posted on-site): ⇒Application for Plumbing Permit. This can be filled out by the property owner or contractor/licensed plumber (copy of license required). For irrigation projects, please read “plumber” as “irrigation specialist” and fill out accordingly.
- Pay Connection Fees: A tap fee will need to be paid if your project requires the installation of a water service line and meter at the property. Contact us by phone to pay any additional applicable upfront fees associated with this connection – see Fee Schedule for details.
- Pay for Required Inspections: There will be one or several inspections that will need be conducted throughout the installation process. For more information on these inspections, and the associated fees, please see our Rate Order for details.
- Once a water meter is set up, you will be charged for services regardless if you are hooked into the system or not. As with all customers, once these steps have been taken, you can choose to utilize any of our available Options (listed above) to simplify your account management and payments.
Fire Hydrant Temporary Meter
Use of water from fire hydrants is limited to firefighting and activities necessary to maintain public health, safety, and welfare. Use of water from designated fire hydrants in our Coverage Area for construction purposes may be allowed under special conditions and requires a meter to be installed by LMUD. To request a temporary meter install:
- Complete and Submit:⇒Application and Service Contract. Use “Service Address” to notate the location of the fire hydrant. Please contact us if you are unsure whether the fire hydrant is owned by LMUD (we cannot issue meters for fire hydrants outside our Coverage Area).

- Once you have been notified that your account has been created (by phone or e-mail), contact us by to pay applicable upfront fees or stop by our district office in person. See Rate Order for current fees.

- Once project has been finalized, complete and submit: ⇒Request Termination of Service
