Water & Sewer Billing

Notice: In light of the ongoing COVID-19 State of Emergency, the Township understands the impact and uncertainty that the crises is causing for many of our residents. In order to help, even if it is a little bit, the township will be extending our grace period on water and sewer interest charges from April 10 until July 10. We also will not be conducting any water shut offs  for non-payment while we are under the state of emergency. Even after the state of emergency is lifted, we will remain committed to assist anyone that has a bona-fide financial hardship due to the COVID-19 outbreak in paying their township utility payments. We will continue to work along with them on a case by case basis to help them in paying their utilities and avoiding any disruption in service. If you have any questions regarding your utility payments or account status, please call (856) 423-1038 x 202.

Quarterly Tax/Utility Reminder:

To receive quarterly tax/utility reminders, simply send an email. Include your own email address in the body of the email to begin receiving reminders. Your email address will be used only to send you tax/utility reminders.

Bill Due Dates

  • January 1
  • April 1
  • July 1
  • October 1

All bills will have a grace period of ten days where no interest will be assessed. After the ten day grace period, interest will be assessed back to the original due date, and will compound daily. If your bill is delinquent, you should call for the most current amount due as it will change daily.

As per Township Code, any water/sewer bills that are more than 30 days past due are considered delinquent and will be subject to shut off. Accounts will be assessed additional fees for costs associated with water shut off and turn on.

Non-Billing Issues

All other water and sewer issues not related to billing may be addressed to the Public Works Department at 856-224-0373.

Residential sewer fees are charged on a flat annual rate. That rate has increased from $300 to $375.00 per year. This is divided into four quarterly billings of 93.75. Which is a quarterly increase of $18.75.

These increases are necessary to meet the rising costs to provide a clean and reliable water supply and treatment of waste water. While Greenwich Township remains among the lowest water and sewer fees in the county, the cost of maintaining and operating these systems continues to increase, particularly with the rising cost of chemicals and increasing number of lab tests that are being mandated by the DEP.  In addition, despite the trend of less consumption by homeowners and significantly less consumption in recent years by our industrial users, the cost of treated water overall has increased. Therefore, in order to meet higher expenses and maintain a balanced budget, we needed to increase the fees to support our water and sewer expenses.

We are committed to provide the best water quality and maintain our high level of service.  We appreciate your understanding and if you have any questions regarding your Water/Sewer billing, please call 856-423-1038 x202.
