* The WATER service is a commodity and it is taxed.

**ServLine is an optional residential program that is automatically included as a line item on your water bill at a cost of $2.25 per month, subject to change as necessary. This program will cover water leaks up to $1,000 on your water portion of your bill excluding the customer’s average bill. Any dollar amount that goes over $1000 that ServLine does not pay, the customer is responsible. If the customer chooses not to participate in the ServLine Program, they may opt out at any time, however, customer will assume full responsibility for their leaks and payment is expected in full by the bill stated due date. There is also an additional, optional $5.25 per month for water line protection, protecting your water line from the meter to the foundation of your home. Adjustments for water leaks and payment arrangements will no longer be given by the City of Niota. ServLine does not cover the City Sewer portion of your bill. More information is available in the Water Department. For further information, please call or visit Niota Waterworks department.
