How to Save Big Money on Your Water Bill
With the approach of warmer weather comes the possibility of the dreaded higher than normal water bills due to outside water use. Did you know that as a Harrison Township resident or business owner, you are able to purchase a second water meter for all of your warm weather needs? By purchasing a second water meter, (commonly called a sprinkling meter) you will greatly reduce your water bill due to the fact that there is no sanitary sewer charge for the water that travels through the sprinkling meter. You can also connect your backup water-driven sump pump and all of your outside garden hose connections to the sprinkling meter. This means watering the lawn, filling your swimming pool, washing your vehicles, power washing the deck, or simply running through the sprinkler can all be done at a greatly reduced water rate. Please contact the Harrison Township Water Department at (586)-466-1425 or (586)-466-1426 for complete details regarding cost, permit requirements and how the addition of a sprinkling meter can save you money.
Please note: payment plans must be set up prior to the due date of your water bill to avoid disruption of your water service! Payment plans will be three equal installments and must be paid every 15 days, with the 1st installment due 15 days after the original due date. The superintendent or person designated by the Township Board must approve the payment plan. If for any reason a resident fails to make a payment by the set date, the water service will be discontinued without further notice. No exceptions! In order to have your service reinstated, the resident will be required to pay a $100.00 reconnection fee and pay the entire water bill in full.
