Understanding Your New City of York Sewer and Refuse Bill

Your sewer and refuse bill will now also show that month’s water consumption on your bill. You will receive a separate water bill.

Your water consumption directly relates to your sewer fees. By seeing your water usage rate on each bill, you can now see how increases or decreases in your water use affect your sewer bill directly.

For every 1,000 gallons of water, the City of York charges you $9.10 for sewer service.
