Lakehaven Water and Sewer District does not stop and start billing when a renter moves in or out. If you read your meter the day the renter moves out and call us with that read, we can give you a verbal calculation of the renter's portion. If you do not get a read you can calculate the renter's portion based on the amount of days in the billing period that the renter was living in your house.
