When should I expect to receive a water/sewer bill?
Water/sewer bills are mailed monthly, usually the last week of the month, and payment is due by the 15th of the following month. A 6% compounding penalty is charged for all late payments.
Why is my water/sewer bill so high?
Your water/sewer bill is based completely on water consumption. If you have a bill which seems higher than usual, you should check your home for water leaks. There is an indicator on the face of your meter which can be used to identify water consumption. The water meter cannot register excess water usage, therefore cannot overstate your water consumption, unless the water actually passed through the meter and into your home.
I haven't received a water/sewer bill in several months. Could there be something wrong?
Yes, your "remote reader" could be malfunctioning, failing to send a signal to our meter-reading equipment and therefore, not generating a bill. If you suspect that you should be getting a bill but have not, please contact the DPW immediately to schedule a repair appointment. Failure to do so may cause a large back-billing for water consumed.
