There will be a lot of changes in our Water & Sewer Billing System. We will do our best to minimize mistakes that would cause inconveniences to our customers. We would like to ask you to carefully examine your invoices with the new rates applied. This is to make sure that you are billed correctly with respect of the new rates and the zoning differentiation (Lift-zone customers pay a higher rate).

Please see Resolution 13-048(S-2(A-3).
