Schedule Payment Arrangements
Your water and/or electric service can be discontinued if payment on your account is not received by the due date. We understand that there are times when circumstances can make it difficult to meet your monthly bills. If you have a past due balance, please call our Utility Billing Technician 720.382.5500 to make arrangements to bring your account up to date. You are eligible for payment arrangements if you meet all of the following criteria:
- You are a homeowner or a tenant that has your landlord's approval.
- You are not currently on a payment plan to pay off a past-due balance.
- You have not broken a payment arrangement with us in the last 13 months.
- If you are attempting to set up payment arrangements in order to avoid a disconnection, you must make those arrangements by calling 720.382.5500 before 4 pm on the first Tuesday of the month.
- Your request may be denied if you still owe money on a previous payment plan with us.
- Your request may be denied if you rent the property and your landlord will not approve the payment plan.
- Your request may be denied if you have not honored a payment plan that was made with us in the past 13 months.
- If you do not make the payments as determined in the payment plan agreement, we have the option to immediately disconnect your service for non-payment.
