Bills are sent out on or around the 15th of every other month (odd months), and are always due by the 10th of the month after they go out (even months).
Your bill is based on how much water passes through your meter -- so whether it’s used or wasted, you pay for every drop. That’s why it is so important to use water wisely. If you are noticing abnormally high usage you can try and troubleshoot yourself by checking the following:

Utilities use temporary paint to mark the location of buried lines and pipe before digging for repairs. The national color code for line locating is as follows.
The paint will wash away in a few days with rainfall. Failure to cooperate with other utilities by locating facilities can lead to service interruptions and worker injuries. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated. If you plan to do it yourself, be sure to call 811 before you dig to make sure you don’t hit any lines.
On rare occasions, water pressure is interrupted—perhaps by a water main break, a power failure, firefighters battling a nearby blaze, or some other disruption in water service. When there is a significant loss of pressure, water can flow back into the public water supply system. When water flows backward into the public water supply, it is called “backflow”. In order to prevent this situation from occurring, Davie County has a State Mandated Cross Connection Prevention Program, which requires users of the public water system to install backflow prevention devices to protect the public drinking water distribution system. Most residential homes without in ground irrigation systems will not have or will not have a need for a testable backflow prevention device.
A hose is submerged in polluted or contaminated water • A secondary source of irrigation water (from a well or pond) is pumped into an irrigation system that is directly connected to the potable water supply system • A heating boiler with treatment chemical added to prevent internal corrosion is connected directly to the water supply for make-up water • An underground lawn sprinkler system is directly connected to the water supply system • A fountain or swimming pool has a direct connection with the water system for filling
Davie County Public Utilities is required by law to provide safe potable water to customers at all times. In order to ensure that contamination does not enter into the distribution system all backflow prevention devices must be tested annually.
