1. Have you paid your utility bill? If you did not pay your bill by the due date, you should have received a reminder. If your bill is not paid by the 10th of the following month, a day is scheduled to disconnect current service for non-payment. If this is the case, the unpaid balance (including penalty) plus a restore fee in the amount of $25.00 must be paid to have services reconnected. Please be aware, checks are not accepted as a form of payment for re-connection of service (cash, money order, debit or credit cards are accepted).
2. If the weather is very cold for several days, you could have frozen water lines. Please call the Town Hall and we can check if the water is frozen at the meter.
3. Sometimes the Town has to work on the main water lines and will disconnect water to a section of residences. Please call the Town Hall to see if we are working on or near your street.
If payment is not received or postmarked by the due date, a 10% penalty is added to the bill the next day. Bills are mailed from an outsourced printing company in Lynchburg, VA. If you do not receive your bill within the first week of the billing month, please call the Town Hall for your current balance due. We are not responsible for mail delivery. Please contact your local post office. You may also pay your bill online at utilitybilling.christiansburg.org/
1. Flush the toilet and allow the tank to refill.2. Once the tank is full, turn off the intake valve under the toilet so no more water comes in.3. Make a pencil mark at the water level inside the tank (not the bowl).4. Let the toilet sit all day (if you are gone during the day) or overnight. Make sure the toilet is not used during that time.5. After that period of time, check the water level in the tank. If the water level has dropped below the pencil mark, there is a leak at the flapper seal at the bottom of the tank and it will need to be replaced.
If you have more than one toilet in the residence, you can do the check on all the toilets but one, leaving it free for use, and then check the one after all the others have been checked.
Should you find a leak, do make arrangements for repair as soon as possible. Keep your receipts or invoices as we will need a copy for our records. Contact the Town Hall at (540) 382-9519 to notify us of your leak and/or repair.
The Town offers residents a pool meter which counts the number of gallons used to fill your pool, and that quantity will be deducted from the sewer portion of your bill upon return. Please contact Debbie Reed or Kayla Crawford in the Finance Department at 382-9519 ext. 1149 or ext.1156 and schedule to pick up a pool meter. Meters are available for a 48-hour loan period with a $25 deposit that will be refunded if returned on-time and in working order.
You may also contact Finance to purchase a meter for watering your garden. Please note that garden meters are available for purchase, but pool meters are only available for rent.
