How do I discontinue service?
  • For your safety, we require a signature in order to discontinue service. It is preferred that you come by the office to sign an original service order. However, if you are not able, we will accept a written letter through the mail or fax providing you contact the office for verification.
Why is my bill so high?
  • There could be several reasons your bill is high. The first thing you may wish to do is to check the reading. We try to be as accurate as possible, however we are only human and things happen. If you find the meter is misread, please feel free to contact our office and we will adjust the readings accordingly.
  • If the reading is correct, you may wish to check for a leak. The best way to do this is to mark the meter for awhile without using any water. If the hand moves during this period, you may have a leak. Also, place some food coloring in the tank portion of your commode. If it drifts into the bowl, your commode may be seeping. You may need to replace a flap or valve.
What if I have a leak and cannot afford to pay my bill?
  • Effective February 2011, Northeast Water and Sewer has reinstated leak adjustments. Click here to review the Leak Adjustment formula worksheet. For questions, please feel free to contact our office during normal business hours. Payment arrangements can be made available by contacting our office immediately. A written contract with payment terms and conditions will be executed and your account will be made penalty exempt. Failure to meet contract terms may result in reinstatement of penalties.
  • Partial payments will be allowed providing you contact our office to make arrangements. If no arrangements have been made, your service may be disconnected at anytime.
