Payment and Rate Information
Whether you are looking to pay your bill online, set up an automatic bill payment schedule, look up our current rates and fees, or get some more information about your bill, Northwestern Water & Sewer District can help you get the answers you need to simplify managing your utility bill.
District customers are billed monthly. Utility bills for water and wastewater services are generated and collected by the Northwestern Water & Sewer District and/or one of the following agents: Perrysburg, Tontogany, or Grand Rapids. Some areas of the District are provided only with sewer services. These are billed a flat rate on a monthly basis from the Northwestern Water & Sewer District office.
Water and sewer services, as well as District operations, are supported by the rates that users pay. The District has one uniform rate for operation and maintenance of water and wastewater system throughout the District; however, the water/sewer treatment rate may vary depending on which municipality is providing the treatment services.
New extensions of water and sewer lines are financed primarily through special assessments to benefiting property owners. Oversizing of water & wastewater lines and common facility improvements such as pump stations and water towers are generally financed through revenue bonds (debt payments) supported by user rates.
