After Hours Water Emergency
Riverton City is on a once per month billing cycle. Meters are read beginning on the 9th or 10th of the month and the last routes are usually read by the 15th of the month. Bills are mailed so that they start arriving in customers mailboxes by the 9th. The City bills for the following services:
- Culinary Water
- Secondary Water
- Storm Water
In the event water service is disconnected, the entire unpaid balance must be paid in full along with the required reconnection fee prior to restoring service.
Utility rates for the various utilities the City provides, as well as details on the City's late fees and reconnection fees can be found on the Riverton City Fee Schedule.
The goal of Riverton City Municipal Water Department is to deliver clean, safe, drinking water to our customers that:
