The City of Morrison provides water and sewer services to its residents. Residential, commercial and industrial accounts are billed on a monthly basis. The following is an overview of the billing cycle and other information pertaining to the City utility bills.
Utility bills are calculated monthly for usage from the 15th of the month to the 15th of the following month. Bills are mailed out so the customer may receive them on or around the 1st of each month. Bills are due on the 15th of the month in which it was received. An additional 10% is added to the current charges if payment is not received on or before the 15th of the month. Failure to pay the bill before the time of the next mailing will result in the mailing of a disconnect notice to the user. If, at the end of 40 days from the date of the original water bill, the full amount of the bill is unpaid, the water supply may be shut off from the building, structure or premises involved and not turned on until the unpaid for water consumed and charges for shutting off and turning on such supply of water are paid by the consumer. The charges for shutting off the water supply due to nonpayment of the original water bill shall be in the amount provided in the city fee schedule in chapter 20.

How do I sign up for water service?
Applications for Metered Water Service can be downloaded or you can obtain an application at City Hall. A deposit of $100.00 is required of all tenants and for new residents and is due within one week of the requested date of service.
Cross Connection and Backflow Prevention
All non-residential customers are required to take steps to prevent cross connections and backflow to the water system. This includes the installation of an approved backflow prevention device and having it tested annually. Residential customers are also required to install backflow prevention devices.
Failure to comply can result in water service disconnection. The City of Morrison Water Department can help to determine if you are in compliance with the regulations, and we are available to answer any questions that you may have related to backflow prevention.
