Effective July 30th any water/sewer accounts that are 90 days in arrears will be transferred to the property tax account and become subject to penalties. Residents will continue to receive their monthly invoices and will be notified when their account is 60 days past due. Following that, residents will receive a disconnection letter via mail and will be given 2 weeks to pay their overdue account. Any amounts remaining 90 days in arrears, will be transferred to the tax roll without further notification.
Utility Customers can still apply to have their water and sewer bills withdrawn from their bank account. The monthly withdrawal will be the actual invoice amount; it will not be pro-rated. The application form is available on the County website or residents can contact the County Office.
MeteringThe meter measures water flow into the home, and is used to determine water and sewer charges. A wire connects the meter to an automatic reading box (ARB) outside the house, which the municipality uses to read the meter without entering the home.
The household meter has a mechanical, digital (odometer-like) counter, and a red indicator, which is about 2 inches long. The meter reads in cubic meters, where one cubic meter is about 220 imperial gallons. The black odometer numbers on the white background are cubic meters,
The water meter can also be used to test for household leaks. To perform a test, make sure everything is turned off, including:
- automatic water sprinklers
- automatic humidifiers
- automatic ice machines
- automatic drinking water filters or reverse osmosis devices
If you suspect a leak, please call to make an appointment for a technician to check your meter.
If you have recently moved and would like your water meter hooked up, please call to have it installed
