Summer Water Usage Adjustment
Each year the Village allows a summer usage adjustment on sewer bills for water used that does not enter the sewer system. Good examples include watering a lawn or filling a swimming pool. This adjustment is available to home owners who do not use a deduct meter. The summer usage adjustment is allowed within the following guidelines:
An application must be submitted between September 15th and October 15th in order to request the credit. For a property owner’s convenience, we have printed an application form that may be completed and returned to the Government Center.
The applicant must have resided at the service address for at least one year prior to making application. Calculations are based upon the previous year’s average usage, so one year of service is required to perform the calculations.
A summer usage adjustment is calculated by determining the customer’s average consumption during the preceding year, and then determining the difference between that average and the consumption for the summer billing months. The Village then credits the account by deducting fifty percent (50%) of the difference between that average and actual summer consumption, as reported to the Village by the water company.
To apply for a summer usage deduction, please fill out the form and return to 209 Service Street, Swansea IL 62226. Click here for form.
