Sewer Rate Information

During the summer of 2019, the Utility Committee authorized the firm of Pfeffer, Hanniford and Palka to complete a rate study utilizing historical data along with known maintenance upgrades and forecasted cost for the next 20 years. It was determined that a new rate of $98.00 was needed from each REU to meet operations and Equipment Replacement items. 

The sewer committee has established Sanitary Sewer Rates for the next five years and will be reviewed every 3 years to verify that their projections are meeting the needs of the community. Following are the five-year rates established by Township resolution #40-2019 on November 6, 2019. 

REU rate billed 4 times per year beginning April 1, 2020 $ 98.00

REU rate billed 4 times per year beginning April 1, 2021 $100.00
