Billings are averaged out with an annual reconciliation in November of each year. Accounts must have a zero balance before starting the program and 12 months of good payment history before requesting to be placed on budget billing. Accounts that become delinquent while participating in the budget billing program, will be removed from budget billing and ineligible to re-enroll until 12 months of good payment history is reached. Contact the billing department at (970) 226-3104 ext.126 to sign up or for additional information.
District Delinquency Policy
Fort Collins-Loveland Water District (FCLWD) reads water meters and sends out bills each month. Current charges shown on the bill are due on the due date printed on the invoice. Any balance due from prior months is shown as a previous balance. Previous balances are overdue and generate a $5.00 late fee.
FCLWD will notify customers of an overdue balance by sending a delinquency notice. Property owners that provide contact information will receive notification of an overdue balance owed by their tenants. For further information about this rental property service please call our office and talk with a customer service representative or visit our FAQ page.
The delinquency notice has an abbreviated due date, shorter than a current monthly bill. If payment is still not made by the date shown on the delinquency notice, a door hanger is delivered to the property and a customer service charge of $20.00 is applied to the account. The door hanger is the final attempt to collect outstanding charges before water service is terminated.
Customers receiving a door hanger must make their payment by 9 a.m. on the day specified on the door hanger. If payment is not received, water service is terminated and additional fees may apply.
Customers who have their water shut off and pay in full before 3:30 p.m. may have their water service restored during our regular business hours. A $50.00 fee applies if service is restored between 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. No service will be restored after hours.
Customers who wish to make payment arrangements should contact the FCLWD office before their water service is shut off. Once water service has been terminated, the service fee and all past due charges must be paid before water service is restored.
