LaGrange County Regional Utility District

Reconnect/Disconnect

DISCONNECTING

If you are disconnecting a structure from the District's system you will need to do the following things.

Contact the District Office to inform us of your intent and to obtain an inspection permit.

Call before you dig.  Dial 811 and they will contact all the appropriate utilities to mark their lines.

You will need to contact the Administrative Office, at least twenty four (24) hours in advance, to schedule an inspection of the disconnect.  You can do that by calling 260-499-6349. 

The District Operations staff will need to inspect the disconnection to ensure that the line has been properly cut and capped.  This needs to be done to ensure that dirt, grit, and other debris does not get into the District's system.  District staff will need to complete a disconnect inspection for your property.  Click here to see an example of this form.  If it is your intention to have the property removed completely from billing you must contact the District Administrative office, at 260-499-6349, and ask to be placed on the monthly agenda.  You must then come before the Board and ask to have the property removed from billing.  In order to do this you must sign an acknowledgment showing that you have read and will comply with Ordinance No. 2010-3-10.  Click here to see an example of the acknowledgment.   You would do this only if you do not have any future plans to restore service to the property.  

RECONNECTING

If you are reconnecting to the District's system the steps are similar to those listed above.  You may need to visit the District's Administrative Office in order to obtain a construction release if you are rebuilding.  Click here to see an example of a construction release.  You will need to contact the Administrative Office, at least twenty four (24) hours in advance, to schedule an inspection of the reconnect.  You can do that by calling 260-499-6349.   If your billing had been reduced to debt service it will resume to full rate.
