Linden Public Works consists of five employees - three in the water/sewer department and two in the streets and grounds department. These workers handle all of the city streets, parks, water and sewer systems.

For after duty hours major water/sewer or street problems please call 903-244-1542.

To get your water turned on you will have to come in to the Linden City Hall, 104 S Main Street, on the Courthouse Square.  There is a deposit required and your water can usually be turned on the same day.  All water billing is sent by mail and you can pay online, by mail, or in person at City Hall.  There is also a night drop at City Hall for dropping off payments after business hours.
