Utility Billing

Water and Sewer bills are sent out quarterly, Jan 1st, April 1st, July 1st and Oct 1st. They are due within 20 days of the billing date.  Germantown calculates the volume charges per 1,000 gallons.

Germantown Utilities crew members collect usage data from your water meter with an automatic meter reading (AMR) device. Our data collection devices read your meter from a distance and store that information in a format that is then downloaded into our billing software to help produce your quarterly billing statement.

In some cases or during certain times of year when we are not able to get close enough to your meter, our data collection devices are not able to communicate with your meter to deliver consumption data. In that event, we provide you with an estimated billing statement, based on your normal usage history for that time of year. Any difference between the amount actually used and the estimated amount billed is corrected automatically when the next regular meter reading is obtained.  Ultimately, you pay only for the amount of water actually used.

Electronic Billing

Germantown Utilities offers the convenience of electronic billing. E-billing eliminates the paper bill and notifies you each quarter when your next bill is available for viewing online. You will need to register initially using your account number found on the upper right-hand corner of your utility bill.  A confirmation e-mail will be sent within a few days. You will then receive notification of the next quarter’s billing via email and/or text (your choice).  An online payment option will be available at that time also. “Click to Pay!”.  (You do not need to use the online payment option to see your bills online.) Click the "E-Bill Sign-Up" icon to enroll.
