The Village of Roscommon has 9.3 miles of sewer mains, 8 sewer lift stations, a wastewater treatment plant, 3 water supply wells, a village-wide fire hydrant system, and a 250,000 gallon water tower that stands 150 feet tall. Together these operations provide our customers with state and national award-winning drinking water, added fire protection (hydrants), and a sanitary sewer service. In 2008 and 2012 the Village of Roscommon won 1st place for the best tasting rural water in the state, and in 2013 the Village took 4th place in Washington DC as having the best tasting water in the nation!
The Village water and sewer bill is generated on a monthly basis. Meters are read the last few days of each month, processed in Village Hall, and then mailed out at the beginning of every month. Bills must be received by the 20th of each month before a 10% penalty is assessed, and failure to receive your bill does not waive the past due penalty. When reading your bill, an explanation of codes is listed on the back. Bills are based on usage, so each customer’s billing amounts will vary (number of people, washing machine, dishwasher, gardening, etc.), so it is not practical to compare your bill with another customer.
Payment of Water/Sewer Bills
You have several options for paying your bill.... you can mail it to us, you can come directly to Village Hall and pay with cash, check or money order, or you can drop your payment in the mail slot which is located on the front door of Village Hall. Check with your financial institution to see if online bill paying is available directly through them. We currently do not accept credit/debit cards and we cannot process checks over the phone.
Past due amounts must be paid by 1:00 pm. on the 15th of each month with no exceptions. Extensions and payment plans are not allowed. If a water service is shut off for non-payment, the entire balance of the account, including the past due, current, and shut off fee must all be paid in-full before water service can be restored. Water service will only be restored during the DPW’s regular work hours, which are Monday through Friday from 7:00 am. – 3:30 pm.
