Sewer Rates

Customers who receive sewer service from Warren Water are billed monthly with their water and sewer charges together in one, itemized statement. The charges for sewer service are based on a system that collects only the cost of providing that service to a customer. Smith’s 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:
1. Minimum use charge
2. Volume charge
3. 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.

Customer Type Meter Size Minimum Charge per Month
Typical residential property 5/8 x 3/4-inch $10.78
(includes 2,000 gallons per month)
Commercial 2-inch $65.52
(includes 16,000 gallons per month)
Industrial 6-inch $319.92
(includes 100,000 gallons per month)
