To get your water turned on you will have to come in to the Linden City Hall, 104 W 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 by mail and you can mail in payment or come in to City Hall to pay your bill.  There is also a night drop at City Hall for dropping off payments after business hours.
