A security deposit is collected from each account holder (owner or tenant). This helps protect the District and ensure payment of the utility bill. A deposit is required even if you previously had or are presently established within the District. Accepted method of payments for the deposit are: Check, Money Order or Credit Cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card).
Yes, the security deposit is refundable once a specific criterion is met. The criteria consists of holding the deposit for a minimum of two years, the second year must be clean and in good standing (no late notices, penalties, lock offs, returned checks, etc.). Upon meeting the criteria your deposit will be applied to your account on the 25th month. Upon final settlement of a customer’s account, any deposit not already credited to the consumer’s account, will be applied to any account balance due, and any remaining balance of the deposit will be refunded.
Deposits are placed in an interest bearing account however, all interest is reinvested into the operation and maintenance costs of the water & sewer system. This helps offset the costs of providing service which is directly reflected in our base rates.
Similar to those of the City of Port St. Lucie and the Fort Pierce Utilities Authority, the utility rates of the District are structured so that all consumers share in the fixed cost of providing utility service. The District’s rates include the water, sewer, and irrigation base as to other utilities they may only provide water or sewer. However, other utilities may only have one or two base rates depending on the types of services they provide. Please Reference the “customer service” tab to view St. Lucie West Services District’s schedule of rates and fees located on our website.
Customers may pay their bills online but not over the phone.
