2012 CCR Water Quality Report
Currently only about 20% of the Township is serviced by sewers. Most of our sewer customers are part of our new grinder pump system. These pumps are owned by the resident and certain care procedures should be followed. We will be mailing out a letter to our customers on these procedures. Please note that it is the residents’ responsibility to provide an electric supply to these pumps. If your electricity goes out for any reason you should limit your use of your sewer. More specifics will be addressed in your upcoming letters.

Postcards were mailed out to all residents indicating that the Board has approved the “Special Senior Water Rate.” Applications are now available in the Treasurer’s Office. In order to be eligible you must be 65 years or older, be a Sumpter Township resident homeowner, and be able to provide proof of both, and sign an affidavit. The purpose of the affidavit is to bill you for your actual water usage, instead of the current minimum billing procedure. This procedure will be implemented in the coming months on your quarterly water bill. If you have and questions, please contact us at (734) 461-6201 ext 2242.
Make Sure Your Bill Is Accurate
Make sure we are charging you for actual usage on your water bills. The front of your water bill will have “R” for “actual” and “E” for “estimated” readings. Your sewer charges will be based on your water usage. If you have a dog, locked gate or some other reason that we cannot get a good “actual” reading, please call to make arrangements to receive cards that you can use to read your owns meter. If your bills are estimated and you do not know why, please call (734) 461-6201, ext 2242.
