Water & Sewer Payments
Water & Sewer BillingEvery customer of the water and sewer system receives a bill every 3 months. These are in envelope form on white stock and are sent to each customer via first class bulk mail. A return envelope is provided and payments are due usually by the 24th through the 28th of the month received.
Late PaymentsIf payment is not received by the due date, it is considered late and a 5% penalty is automatically applied. If payment is not received, a shut off order may be issued and representatives from the water and sewer department visit the customer and a notice of service termination is left at the door. In order to have your service reinstated, the Macomb Township Treasurer must receive full payment including a $25 turn on fee in cash form. Once payment is received, then the service will be reinstated with the presence of the customer to assure there are no leaks in the building.
Charges for water supply and/or wastewater disposal services shall be a lien upon the premises served as provided by statute. Alternatively, the unpaid water supply and/or wastewater disposal service charges may be certified to the taxes against the premises served and collected or returned in the same manner as other county or municipal taxes are certified, assessed, collected and returned as provided by statute. The process of transferring delinquent balances to the winter tax bill happen on October 31st of every year and be subject to a 15% transfer fee (this process is not reversible).
Great Lakes Water Authority WRAP Program
The Water Residential Assistance Program (WRAP) was established as a result of the historic agreement that stood up the Great Lakes Water Authority in 2015. WRAP was officially launched on March 1, 2016 and its day-to-day operations are coordinated for GLWA by its contractual partner Wayne Metro.
The program is the first of its kind in Michigan and one of only a few models of sustainable assistance plans in the country, and represents a hallmark of regional collaboration to provide assistance to people in need in the communities that GLWA serves throughout southeast Michigan.
WRAP not only provides direct assistance with bill payment and arrearages, it also provide funds for home audits and fixture repairs and replacements that will conserve system resources and further reduce the amount of homeowners’ bills moving forward.
