Odd / Even Voluntary Outdoor Water Restrictions

To help reduce future water rate increases, Canton is asking all customers to comply with our odd / even voluntary outdoor water restrictions. By following these voluntary restrictions, we can cooperatively help reduce water use during peak demand periods and help reduce future rate increases. The restrictions are as follows:

  • If your address ends in an odd number, irrigation should only be done on odd numbered days.
  • If you have an even numbered address, irrigation should be done on even numbered days.
  • Canton residents should irrigate between the hours of midnight and 6 am.

Delinquent Water Accounts


Customer's who fail to pay, or make arrangements for a payment plan within 7 - 10 calendar days following the due date of their water bill, will be notified in writing. A short extension period will be indicated on the notice; failure to pay following the delinquent notice, will result in termination of service.

  • If water service isn't available for more than 24 hours, the house cannot be occupied in accordance to Township Ordinance 78-165.
  • Water will not be shut off during the months of December 1 through March 31.
  • Water will not be shut off over a weekend, or over a holiday.
  • Payments must be paid in full with guaranteed funds (money order, cash, credit cards) before the water will be turned on.
  • A charge of $70 for the involuntary disconnection will be added to the account. A re-connection charge of $45 will be added to the account.
