Washington DC Utilities
When you move to a new city, there's always a lot that you need to do. It can
sometimes take a while for utilities to be activated. It's a good idea to scout
ahead and contact your new utility providers to see how you should best go about
getting your utilities set up.
You might need to show proof of address before you are allowed to set up your
utilities. You might also need a picture id as well. If you are already
established in your home, the information below can also help you if there are
any problems with your service. If you are moving within the city, you might
have to just contact your current provider to transfer service to your new
location. Also, some providers only service parts of the city. Know if you are
leaving their coverage area and how that will affect you.
In addition, if you are planning to do any construction on your property or dig
in your yard, you should contact you local utility companies. This is to make
sure you don't dig in to any underground wires or plumbing. You could not only
seriously hurt yourself, but also cause a major problem with utility service in
your area. This is a smart and safe way to make sure that you don't do anything
foolish while making improvements to your land.
The following is contact information for various utility companies, city services, cable and satellite providers, and waste management services in the
