Please contact Village Hall (618-588-3813) to establish water and sewer at your new residence. A $100.00 Water Deposit is required. Bills shall be due and payable on or before the 15th of the month. Unpaid bills at this time shall be considered delinquent and a 10% penalty assessed. Failure to make payment can result in disconnection of service. In the event this occurs a reconnection fee of $25.00 will be assessed, and service restored only after full payment of debt.
Payments can be made 24/7 via the night deposit slot located on the west side of Village Hall (South Railway Street). The Village also offers an auto-deduct option (see below for more info).
Meters are read around the 15th of each month. Bills are mailed to be received on the 1st of the month. Payments are always due on the 15th of the month. If the 15th falls on a weekend or a holiday, please make sure payment is in the night deposit box by the following business day at 8:00 a.m.
Deduct Water Meter
At the regular meeting of the Village Board on August 6, 2012, the Board approved the use of a “deduct meter.” This meter will allow you to track your water usage on outside faucets, for such purposes as sprinklers, swimming pools, car washing, etc.
The meter will cost you approximately $100, plus an annual $10 service fee to the Village. Each meter must be registered at Village Hall. Every year in October (between 10/1 and 10/20), you must bring your meter into Village Hall for a reading. You will receive a one-time credit at that time for the year.
The meter can be purchased at the New Baden Aviston Lumber, 588-3555.
The Ordinance can be viewed in its entirety at Village Hall or click here.
Going forward, you must have a deduct meter to receive any pool credits. The Village will no longer be estimating usage when you fill your pool in the summer months.
Please contact Village Hall with any questions.
