Credit will only be given on the sewer portion of any individual’s water and sewer bill for the initial filling of a residential pool.
The amount of water used to fill the pool will be recorded by a meter installed by the Town on the line used to fill the pool.
Request for the sewer credit will be made in writing by completing a “Request for Pool Credit” form from the Town prior to adding any water to the pool. If available please submit the pool manufacturer’s information along with the form.
Credit will only be extended to customers with pools that are permanent fixtures. Credit will not be given for “Kiddie”, “Soft Sided”, or “Portable” style pools.
If the request for credit is obtained during the customer’s current billing period and bills have already been mailed and/or posted, the credit will be given on the following billing period with the reason for the credit being noted on the customer’s ledger.
Credit will only be given for the Initial filling of a “NEW” pool or when an “Existing” pool is started for the season, or is completely drained for repair or cleaning. Only one credit will be given for the season.
No credit will be given for ‘topping off’ the pool due to refilling for daily use or evaporation.
The “normal” water charges will be assessed for all water passing through the water meter.
