New Water Service
The City of Terrell provides water, sewer, and garbage collection service for residents and commercial customers.
New utility customers are required to come to the Utility office (201 East Nash Street) to establish an account. You will be asked to provide proper identification and to pay the necessary deposits. Residential service requires a deposit of $100.00 plus a $35.00 connection fee. Commercial accounts require a deposit of twice the estimated average bill for service. Contact the office for more information.
For new homes, if water or sewer service does not exist to the property, a permit must be issued through Municipal Development Department. Any associated fees for water and sewer taps and installation of a meter are collected as part of review and issuance of the permit.
For new commercial construction, installation of services is the responsibility of the contractor completing the work and will be reviewed and approved as part of the general contractor’s permit issued.
