Water and Sewer Billing

Water bills are mailed on the 5th of every odd month and due on the 5th of every even month, as shown on the table below.  If the 5th falls on a weekend or holiday, the bill will be due the following business day.  A 10% penalty is applied to the outstanding balance on the 6th of the month the bills are due.  Payments are accepted in the form of cash, check or money order.  Currently, we do not accept debit or credit cards.   When paying by check or money order, please make payable to the Town of Grottoes.  There is a $30.00 charge for returned checks.

The day after bills are due, a final notice will be mailed to all customers with an outstanding balance.  This notice will provide a disconnection date and time.  If full payment is not received by the given date, services will be disconnected.  A reconnection fee will be due in addition to any remaining balance in order to restore your services.  Reconnection fees are $30.00 during regular business hours and $60.00 during non-business and holiday hours.
