Unclaimed Water Refunds

The Department of Water Resources is looking for individuals
who are due more than $24,000 in refunds from closed water
accounts. Amy Bennett, Finance and Administration Division
Manager, said the refunds date back to July 2011. “We have exhausted all
efforts to get in touch with the customers on the list. We really hope
some of these people will come forward so we can settle their
accounts and not have to turn this money over to the state,”
Bennett said.
Accounts prior to June 2011 have been turned over to the State of Georgia
as unclaimed per the State regulations.
Customers and former customers who think they might be due a
refund should check the list on the city website, www.gainesville.org.
If your name is listed please call the Department of Water Resources at
770-535-6878 or email customerservice@gainesville.org.
They will need time to process the paperwork before
any checks can be issued.
