Clarkesville's municipally-owned water and wastewater utilities are locally controlled and managed, providing residential rates, greater reliability and efficiency, and better and quicker responsiveness to customer concerns. The Utility Department is located at Clarkesville City Hall.
Water and Sewer Service
Water and sewer service is available for city residents and for some county residents. All new customers must pay a $100 deposit. In addition, for initial hook-ups, water and sewer tap fees must be paid. "Initial hook-up" refers to the first time that Clarkesville's water and sewer service is installed at a residence or business.
Within city limits: Water: $1000, Sewer: $1000
Outside city limits: Water: $1500, Sewer: $1500
If the water or sewer main is located on the opposite side of the road as the new tap, a road bore will be necessary and additional fees will be required.
Additional impact fees are required for some residents on New Liberty Road.
Payments are due by the 15th of each month. There is a 10 percent penalty added to all bills paid after the 15th. Customers whose water has been turned off for nonpayment may have service restored by paying all past due bills and a $35 administrative fee.
The Water Department is located at City Hall.
