Adjustments can be made to individual sewer bills when separate (or deduct) meters document the amount of water that has been diverted from the public sewer system (to fill a swimming pool, for outdoor sprinkler system, etc.)
Township property owner with sprinkler systems, pools, wells, etc. are advised to install a deduct meter to track water usage on those systems. Deduct meters can be purchased at a hardware store or installed by a plumber.
Report Deduct Meter Readings
Property owners are responsible for reporting their deduct meter readings to the Township annually in order to be eligible for credit to be applied towards their current year's sewer rent bill. Deduct meter readings are due annually by March 1.
