Sewerage Bill

Parish Sewer System:

 

Bossier Parish has recently acquired ownership of Red Chute and Eagle sewer systems under the Consolidated Waterworks and Sewer District No. 1.  Because the Parish has no capability to monitor our members water usage or bill for that usage, Village Water is now doing the billing for the Parish sewer customers who are also members of the Village Water system.  Currently, VWS is billing approximately 1200 Parish sewer customers.  Sewer rates are established by the Parish.
