Pool Fill Forms
Sewer assessment credit can be waived on the number of gallons used to fill a swimming pool one time each year between May 1 and June 9 for residents with pools. In order to qualify for this credit, the resident must complete a pool fill form. This information must be returned to the HSD within 72 hours of a pool fill.
Summer Sprinkling Rates
During the billing period from June through September, your sewer rate will be based upon your average water consumption from the previous months of January through April. However, any resident using less water in the summer than their average will be billed for the lesser amount by completing the summer rate sprinkling form.
The monthly garbage collection fee is assessed by ordinance for each residence or unit. Senior discounts applicationsmay be turned in to the billing center for those resident owners who are age 65 or older. Proof of ownership and valid Indiana State ID is required.
