Customers who receive sewer service from Warren Water are billed monthly with their water and sewer charges together in one, itemized statement. Sewer service charges are calculated based on a minimum use charge and a volume charge determined by how many gallons of water went through your water meter in each billing period. A volume charge is applied when you dispose of wastewater in amounts over what is included in the minimum use charge. Smiths Grove residents are billed using a system of rates different than other Warren County residents because of the added costs required to provide wastewater service to that portion of the county.
Your sewer bill is calculated based on three items:
- Minimum use charge
- Volume charge
- Applicable Taxes
A minimum use charge is applied to your bill in order to cover the costs of providing service including things such as system maintenance, meter reading and more. The charge also permits a specified amount of wastewater disposal.
(includes 2,000 gallons per month)
(includes 16,000 gallons per month)
(includes 100,000 gallons per month)
A volume charge is applied when you dispose of wastewater in amounts over what is included in the minimum use charge. A block of rates apply to all wastewater disposal and are the same regardless of meter size. The rates are listed in the table below.
(above 2,000 gallons)
$5.30 per 1,000 gallons
$4.16 per 1,000 gallons
$3.86 per 1,000 gallons
$3.36 per 1,000 gallons
Applicable taxes are added to your bill depending on the type of service provided. Non-residential customers are subject to a 6 percent state sales tax unless they submit a tax exemption form to Warren Water.
