Your water bill is a lien
Our customers are often surprised to find out that their bill for water and sewer service is a lien on the property. This means that the property owner is utlimately responsible for the charges regardless of the account holder on the bill. When buying a home, be sure money is escrowed to pay final water and sewer bills of the former owner.

Beginning with the October 2011 bills, the township will be sending shutoff notices for past due bills in November 2011. The township reserves the right per ordinance to shut off water to properties that have a past due balance. Owners that have rental properties will be responsible to pay the water/sewer usage bill unless they have complied with the Water & Sewer Ordinance Section 1711 and have deposited $500 with the township per rental unit.
