Sewer bills are based upon water usage reported to the City from Illinois American Water Co. The usage is reflected in the meter readings on the bill. Residents should compare the readings on their water bills and sewer bills to verify accuracy. If readings do not match, the City's Sewer Billing Department should be notified at 618-233-6810 and a review should be requested.
Charges are also based upon the unit of measure of the meter, the location of the property, and whether the property is residential or commercial. The types of services are listed and explained below.
