Customer Deposits

A security deposit of $150.00 is collected from all customers establishing city services. Deposits are held for 3 years, and with good payment history, are refunded to the current balance or they are applied to the final bill. Click here to start services.

Billing Information

* Water meters are read each month. The reading date depends on which "Zone" a property resides in. Once the bills are prepared, they are mailed or emailed to the customers. Bills are due 21 days after mailing. Due dates vary depending on the zone and cannot be changed.
* Unpaid balances will receive a 5% penalty and could result in notification of delinquency.
* Attention Renters! Landlords will be notified of any delinquencies. Accounts revert back to the property owner on the third delinquency. Click here for the full policy.

The City of Spearfish offers a reduced rate for those properties that are vacated for 30 consecutive days. This rate is not retroactive and an administrative fee does apply. Call 642-1325 for more information.

Water Disconnection

Any persons wishing to have their water service turned off must contact a plumber or the City Utility office to borrow a curb stop wrench. The City turns off water service for non-payment of accounts only.
