SEWER BILL PAYMENTS
Sewer rates are based on water consumption and are billed a month behind a sewer customers’ water bills. In other words, the water you use for the water bill you receive in January is used to calculate your February sewer bill.
Payments are due to the Utility Billing Office on the 10th day of each month. Payments may be by cash, check or money order, credit/debit card or sewer customers may opt to enroll in electronic funds transfer.
There is a $25 charge for checks returned for insufficient funds. Credit/debit card transactions are subject to a $2.29 convenience fee.
If a bill is unpaid after the 10th day of the month, a 10 percent penalty applies as prescribed in Indiana Code 36-9-23-31.

SEWER DISCONNECTION POLICY

When a sewer bill remains unpaid for sixty (60) a letter will be sent to the customer. After ninety (90) days a list of customers will be generated and prioritized based on the following:

b. Amount due
RESPONSIBILITY FOR PAYMENTS
City Council ordinance 2011-OR-73 states that property owners are responsible for the payment of sewer bills. Landlords should be aware that they are ultimately responsible for tenants’ unpaid sewer bills.
Properties for which sewer bills remain unpaid are subject to liens under Indiana Code 36-9-23-32.
WASTEWATER BILLING ADJUSTMENT POLICY
The purpose of this policy is to establish uniform City procedures regarding adjustment to customers’ monthly billing for sewer usage; to establish guidelines for application of adjustments to customers’ monthly bills; to ensure that the use of billing adjustments is correctly authorized and applied; and to disconnect water service for non-payment of sewer bills.
Please report sewer emergencies to the wastewater treatment plant at 812-285-6451 before calling a plumber.
Treatment plant office hours are 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Friday, or after hours the answering service will forward a message.
Jeffersonville’s residential wastewater customers are assessed a $3.50 per month fee for drainage, to help improve water quality and comply with the Clean Water Act. Drainage fees for businesses are based on the amount of impervious area — any surface through which water cannot seep — on each business customer’s property.
