Reading your Utility Billing:

How much is a Utility Bill?
The total cost for water/sewer is a fixed charge plus additional consumption charges.

Water Fixed Charge: $124.00 (up to 6000 gallons per quarter)
Water Consumption Rate: $2.25/1000 gallons (after 6000 gallons)
Sewer Fixed Charge: $21.00
Infrastructure Fixed Charge: $30.00

Note: Commercial businesses are charged differently than residential consumers.

How is your Water Bill Calculated?
Water meters measure consumption based on water consumed/gallon. The amount of water consumption used by your residence is then multiplied by the current water  rate.

Am I still charged if I don’t use any water?
There is a minimum charge in order to supply water services to your property even if no water is consumed. This is the fixed charge for the water and sewer system.

If you are going to be absent from your residence for an extended period of time the water and sewer services can be inactivated and then reactivated upon your return. There is an associated cost for this service and the Town Office must be contacted for it.
