How is My Sewer Bill Calculated

Sewer charges are based on water usage. Illinois American Water provides the city with monthly water meter readings. We bill a month behind your water usage.

Sewer rates are $5.63 per 100 cubic feet (approximately 748 gallons). Effective May 1st, 2023, the new Sewer Rate will increase from $5.63 to $6.19. 

Example: If you use 4 units of water (400 cubic feet or 2992 gallons), the sewer charge would be $22.52. (4 times $4.86).

The garbage rate is $18.84 per month.

Sewer is billed at a minimum of 2 units per month. A minimum monthly sewer/garbage bill is $30.10 ($18.84 garbage and $11.26 sewer).
