ONE DWELLING PER METER POLICY

It is the Public Utility Commision of Texas rule that one paid meter and tap is required for each dwelling/residence of human habitation. 

If El Oso WSC detects multiple dwellings on one meter, a written notice will be sent to individual in violation of this rule and will require pre-payment for the setting of additional water meters for the dwellings requiring the same.

Non-compliance shall constitute the basis for a disconnect from El Oso WSCs system.
