The sewer system serves approximately 9,500 customers in the Municipality.  Sewer charges are no longer billed annually but are now billed on a monthly basis.  The current sewer charges consist of a service charge and a consumption charge that is based on the amount of water used in the previous month as shown below as of December 1, 2016:


Service charge per month                                        $10.00

Usage from 0 to 2,300 gallons per month               $ 3.00 per 1,000 gallons

Usage over 2,300 gallons per month                       $  6.10 per 1,000 gallons

Property on well but connected to sewer system          $18.00 per month


A vacant property is billed for the service charge even if there is no usage unless the water service has been shut off.


Effective January 2, 2007 the Authority no longer issues a credit to the sewer bill for the filling of swimming pools.
