Sewer Charge
Monday, Nov 02, 2015 10:35am

Your sewer charge on your current bill reflects your actual water usage. From September to March, what water usage you consume, you will be charged the same consumption for sewer. For example: if you use 5,000 gallons of water, you will be charged 5,000 gallons of sewer. Your last bill was still on sewer average. The sewer company averages your winter and fall usage and that is what you are billed through the spring and summer. If you have any questions in regards to how you are billed for sewer, please call the parish at 318-742-9748.
