Reading Water Meters
Public Notice about Drinking Water
Water meters are read in the months of May and November, as sewer bills are calculated on the amount of water used in the winter months. If homeowner is not available, cards will be left at door for homeowner to complete and return at their most earliest convenience and at no cost to homeowner. All questions pertaining to your water and sewer bills should be directed to the Tax Collectors office.
Notice: Bi-Annual Hydrant Flushing Notice
The Water Department cleans the water system by flushing fire hydrants in the months of April and October. The flushing of the system rids the water mains of any iron and foreign debris that might have deposited on the bottom of the water main. Hydrant flushing maintains the hydrant and keeps it in working order. It also helps us provide clean drinking water that is pleasing to the taste. During these months, homeowners are urged to run their water directly after flushing to clean any debris that may remain in the water lines in their homes.
