Billing & Costs
If you are not yet connected to the sewer system, please read about the associated costs to connect your home.
Franconia Sewer Authority invoices for service used on a quarterly basis. Invoices are generally sent by the 15th of the month following the end of a quarter (April, July, October, and January). The payment usually is due 3 or 4 weeks from the invoice date. Payments made after the due date are subject to a 10% late fee.
The rate for the quarterly sewer bill is $175.00 which went into effect the first quarter of 2023.
Accounts delinquent by two or more billing cycles are subject to one or both of the following actions: a) if the property is served by public water, water service will be shut off; b) a lien will be placed against the property to recover the amount owed. The cost of taking these actions is added to the amount owed.
Payments for sewer service can be mailed or dropped off at the Township Building (address on the back of the invoice). Please do not send cash; cash is accepted at the Township Building during normal business hours. Payments can be dropped off in the mail box outside the left entrance of the Township Building. Do not leave cash in this mailbox! Online payments can be made by clicking the link on the Sewer Authority Home Page or Online Payments tab. There is a small fee associated with this online payment. The Sewer Authority does not receive this fee. The fee is imposed by the third-party billing company that handles the online payments. Please note, credit card payments are not accepted at the Township Office.
If you have been served with a notice of water shut off (due to delinquent payment), you can avoid the shut-off if you bring your account current using cash, cashier’s check, or money order – we do not accept personal checks in this situation.
