Water and Sewer Rates for 2022
Water and sewer is billed quarterly for all accounts. The quarterly rate for each is as follows:
Water: $129.00 per quarter
Sewer: $115.00 per quarter
Total basic bill: $244.00 quarterly
Each customer is allotted 30,000 gallons of water for a three-month period. The rate for usage exceeding 30,000 gallons is $1.70 per 1,000 gallons over 30,000 gallons.
Customers residing outside of the Pomeroy City Limits are billed at a rate of $193.50 quarterly for water. The allotted 30,000 applies to these users as well, as does the water overage rate of $1.70 per 1,000 gallons over the 30,000 gallon base.
Meters are read on or near the 15th day of each month. During the months of December, January, and February, no meters are read due to winter conditions (snow & ice on the meter boxes). Please check to insure no faucets are dripping or toilet flapper does not completely seal. This can cause water overages. If you notice or hear water running, please contact the Pomeroy Public Works office at 509-843-3936. Customers are given a 60,000 gallon water credit during these months to compensate for the quarter that the meter is not read.
If payments have not received prior to the 15th of the month for your current billing quarter, the City issues a pink "Reminder" stating the account balance, due date and shut off date. The charge for the Reminder is $2.00.
If no payments are made as stated on the Reminder, a Red Tag will be placed on the customer's door. Service will be terminated if payment arrangements are not made with the Clerk's office within 24 hours.
The quarterly sewer charge of $115.00 is a basic rate and does not fluctuate (with some exceptions such as trailer parks, apartment buildings, and other multi-family facilities).
If the City receives an NSF check from a customer, there will be a $20.00 fee assessed.
