LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Lubbock water customers might see some changes, if Lubbock City Council approves this week.  Under the proposal, water service will be disconnected if a customer fails to pay for other utilities (not just water or electricity). 

A reconnect fee will increase from $44 to $55.  An after-hours reconnect fee will increase from $57 to $87.  New residential customers will have to pay a deposit of at least $75, unless they can show a good payment history with Lubbock or another city.  The cost of new water and sewer connections will go up to $400 each.
