Water and Sewer Billing

 The Township's bills include charges for water and wastewater services. The charge for each service includes a fixed charge and a metered charge.

  1. Fixed Charge - This cost does not change and appears the same on every bill. For example, in 2023, residents that have the standard 15 mm meter will have a fixed water charge of $67.32 and a fixed sewer charge of $124.59, therefore, giving a total fixed charge of $191.91.
  2. Metered Charge - This cost is a variable charge and is dependent upon individual consumption. For example, in 2023, residents will pay $1.88 per cubic meter for water and $2.57 per cubic meter for sewer.
    .

A 2023 Water & Wasterwater bill example, assuming a consumption of 0.5 cubic meters/day (30 cubic meters in 60 days), would be calculated as follows;

  • $77.10 -Sewer Variable charges (30 cubic meters x $2.57/cubic meter)
  • $124.59 - Sewer Fixed charges
  • $56.40 - Water Variable charges (30 cubic meters x $1.88/cubic meter)
  • $67.32 - Water Fixed charges
  • $325.41 Total Water & Wastewater bill (60 day period)

 If averaged for a 30 day period, this would equal a monthly billing of $162.71.
