Water and Sewer Bill Information

Water and sewer bills are based on the actual water usage for a given quarter.  The water rates are based on the amount of water you use. The more water you use, the higher the rate.  Each account has a water meter that measures usage.

A portion of the bill includes water and sewer service charges.  Each residential and commercial property is assessed a number of units. A single-family house is a 1 unit, a double family is 2 units, multiple units are charged per unit.  For commercial properties each unit is charged.

As of January 1, 2024, rates for each unit, a customer pays $75.05 for water service charge and $63.50 for sewer service charge for a total of $138.55.  Then assessed for water usage and sewer charge. (Water Service $75.05 + Sewer Service $63.50 + $[water usage charge] + $[sewer usage charge] = total bill)

Your water meter is read quarterly. 

Bills are mailed by January 1st, April 1st, July 1st and October 1st.

Customers have until the 15th of those months to pay the bill.  After the 15th of that month, 18% interest will be charged, it will revert back to the 1st of that month.
