2. Why does Chester Water require a security deposit?
In case a customer fails to pay their water bill.
3. How come my water has been turned off?
The water may not be on due to the fact that there may be a water main break in your area or because of non-payment of your water or wasterwater bill.

4. Why is my water bill so high?
There may be a leak. CWA will first check your account to see the consumption history and a meter serviceman will be scheduled to inspect your home for possible leaks. You may be using more water than you think. The average household uses about 5400 gallons per month, or 180 gallons per day. If your water consumption seems too high, you can call our Customer Service Department for assistance.
