The Star Sewer & Water District provides domestic water and wastewater treatment service to more than 5,500 customers across the community. The process of initiating service is simple and can be achieved several ways.
Purchasing a home
If you are purchasing a home serviced by Star Sewer & Water District, domestic water and sewer service will automatically be transferred into your name with the assistance of the title company.
How the process works
If you are purchasing a home that receives utility services through Star Sewer & Water District, the title company will request an assessment on the property. This assessment will include the amount that will be withheld from the seller or collected from the buyer at closing. These funds will be paid by the title company.
After closing, the title company will send the funds, warranty deed, and property transfer form to the District. At this point, a new account will be created. Services are not disrupted during transfer of ownership. The final bill will be paid by the title company with the escrowed funds held at the closing. If the title company withheld more than was owed, a refund will be issued by the District.
