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.
