The fixed charges vary based on the size of water meter in your home or business. The fixed charge for residential customers (based on a one-inch meter or less) is $8.64 per quarterly billing, if you have a separate sump pump system. For customers who do not have a separate sump pump system, a fixed charge of $24.39 will be assessed quarterly. This additional charge reflects the rainwater that enters the sanitary sewer system from the footing drain system that requires treatment at the wastewater treatment plants. If you are unsure whether you have a separate sump pump system or not, please contact the Water Billing staff in the Treasurer’s Office at 734/394-5240 and schedule an appointment to have an inspection by the DPW staff.
A fixed rate schedule for customers with larger meters can be located under the download section of the Water Billing page.
