Water & Sewer Service
Water and Sewer are billed Quarterly.
There are 3 separate billing areas in the township (so just because a friend received a bill does not necessarily mean that you will receive yours at the same time) If you are unsure of what your billing cycle is, please contact our office for your billing schedule.
|Quarterly Charge for the Initial 6,000 Gallons||$32.40|
|After the Initial 6,000 Gallons||$5.14 per 1,000 gallons|
|Grinder (Garbage Disposal)||$5.50|
|Quarterly charge of Public Sewer||$128.52|
If you have a commercial property your sewer will be based on water usage with the first 15,000 gallons of water used billed at the flat rate of $123.52 and each additional 1,000 gallons of water will be billed on your sewer at $7.87.
Think You Have a Leak?
Check your commode and faucets for leaks. A good way to check for a leak in the commode is to add a few drops of food coloring into the tank water (enough to visually discolor the water). Do Not Flush! Come back in a hour or more and check to see if any of the tinted/colored water is in the bowl area of commode. If it has, you have a leak.
Also, you should read the meter before going to bed and read it again when you awake in the morning. If the numbers have changed without any water usage, there is a leak somewhere in the house or on your property.
Ways to Conserve Water
- Turn off water while brushing your teeth.
- Have someone who you think is taking too long of a shower? Put a kitchen timer in the bathroom
and set it….When the timer goes off, it’s time to get out of the shower.
- Put a 1/4 or 1/2 gallon container filled with water in the tank area of your commode
(avoiding the float and trap area) This way every time you flush and the tank refills, it will
have to fill that much less.
- Only do dishes or laundry when you have a full load.
- During a summer drought, save dish or bath water to water the garden and plants. The detergent
will not harm them.
