FARMINGTON – The City of Farmington is sharing facts residents need to be aware of in regards to their sewer bills.

It is important to remember sewer bills are separate from water bills.

Sewer bill totals are based on water reading data provided by the Farmington Water Association which is why the sewer bill comes one month after the water bill.

To illustrate, here is a sample scenario:

January 1 – A customer paid their sewer deposit and moved into a new residence. They will use water the entire month of January.

February – The water meter will be read by Farmington Water and the customer will receive their first water bill. The readings will then be transferred to the City of Farmington.

March – Customers receive their first sewer bill. The sewer bill they receive in March reflects January's responsibility.

The Farmington sewer was installed in 2004. Sewer bills are mailed out by the 5th of the month. There is only one billing cycle. So, customers who rely on a monthly check should keep that in mind and make necessary preparations.

A payment drop box is located at City Hall next to the front doors. For convenience, bank draft is also available.

All returned checks and bank drafts will result in a $40 serve charge. After a third returned item, cash, money order, or cashier's check will only be accepted for one year after.

“If you move, please notify Farmington City Hall of your new address. Your deposit will be applied to your final bill once the final meter reading is received from Farmington Water Association. Any remaining deposit will be refunded to you and mailed to the forwarding address given,” said Mayor of Farmington Dale Fortendale.

Residents should note rates and polices are set by the Farmington Board of Alderman and are subject to change at any time.
