In cases where landowners subdivide acreage served through one delivery gate, IID staff will split the service location and require a new water card that identifies the acreage for each tenant served. IID does not recognize sub-lease agreements.
IID will accept a "Certificate of Ownership" without further proof of ownership and will accept the certificate when made by a person acting on behalf of the owner; however, IID may require evidence of his authority to represent the landowner. Where an owner uses the "Authorization of Agent or Tenant" section to designate his tenant as his agent, he will guarantee payment for all water service charges incurred by the tenant. Any changes of the terms of authorization as printed on the form will be disregarded by IID.
If the owner or IID requires the designated tenant-agent make a cash deposit to guarantee payment of water service charges, IID will not deliver water on the order of the tenant-agent until the deposit is made.
IID will not be responsible for sufficiency of the deposit required, and will hold the landowner responsible for payment of any unpaid water service charges in excess of the deposit.
Please refer to Regulation No. 3 Application for Service for additional information.
