The property owner is ultimately responsible for all sewer charges. Failure to pay can result in the filing of municipal liens and in referral to a collections agency.

Be conscientious of your water usage. Your monthly sewer charges are based on the actual water consumption. This includes watering of lawns and gardens, washing of cars and filling of pools. For more tips on how to conserve water visit any of the following links:

If your bill reflects a zero usage please contact us. Why? There may be a problem with the meter reading equipment or with the billing link. We will work to identify and correct the problem and will issue a corrected bill.
