Water & Sewer Classes

Non-residential customers are separated into four groups for the purpose of applying water and sewer utility rates. Due to the diversity of zoning, land use contracts and the actual use of properties, the classification of non-residential properties can be on a case by case basis. Where a property has more than one zoning classification the lower utility rate is typically applied. Land Use Contracts take precedence over zoning. 

Check your utility bill for the water and sewer description to know which classification is applied to your property.
