Effective July 1, 2013
Operation & Maintenance
Reserves (includes MDEQ)
Rates are per 1,000 cubic feet of water used.
Each year, the Detroit Water & Sewerage Department updates
their rates for the 125 communities that use their water and
sewer service including Farmington Hills.
As of July 1, 2013 sewer rates will increase $1.30 from
$26.16 to $27.46 per 1,000 cubic feet of water with a minimum
bill of $43.94 per quarter. Minimum bills are necessary to share
in the cost of operating and maintaining the water and sewer
systems. Residents without City water will pay a flat rate for
sewer of $109.84 per quarter. Bills will be prorated so that
sewer use prior to July 1, 2013 will be billed at the current
2012/2013 rate. Sewer use after July 1, 2013 will be billed at
the new 2013/2014 rate.
