Sewer Billing Department
Payments of cash or check are received at the Tax Office during regular business hours.
If you would like to pay with a credit card or through your checking account, you can pay online.
Calculation of Sewer Bills
Sewer bills are calculated by $50 per unit charge for every quarter plus $3.51 for every 1,000 gallons of water used.
The water used number comes to us from the New Jersey American Water Company.
If you think your water bill, for whatever reason, is higher than usual, your sewer bill will also be higher than usual. You must first get your New Jersey American Water bill corrected, then bring the corrected bill to our office, and we will correct your sewer bill based upon the New Jersey American Water corrected bill.
Sewer bills are due 30 days after they have been mailed. Since we depend on New Jersey American Water for water used amounts, these dates cannot be determined ahead of time. The date on the bill will be the actual date the payment is due. Any payments received after that date are delinquent and will be charged interest.
Please remember that it is not the date you mail your payment in, rather it is the date we receive your payment that determines the payment date.
