Utilities & Service

The Utility Services Department oversees water and sewer services for Oak Ridge North. Duties of the department include: 

  • Residential and commercial water deposits

  • New water, sewer, and solid waste connections

  • Consumer disconnects

Requests for new services may be made in person, by fax, or by email. Services will be connected when a Utility Service Application for residential and commercial utilities is completed and the service deposit is paid. This agreement is required by the TCEQ and every customer must sign this agreement before the city can establish service.  A copy of your driver's license is required. There is a deposit for water and trash service and for trash service only. If service to an existing connection has been terminated or suspended, the city will not re-establish service unless it has a signed copy of this agreement. Services cannot be provided until all information and deposits are received.
