Duties of Sewer Utility:
Collection and Billing of Sewer Rents:
Sewer bills are computed on the consumption of water usage. These readings are done by Aqua Water Co. However, NO consumption would result in a minimum bill of $15.00.
Delinquent accounts are subject to interest. Accounts with prior year delinquency will be subject to the Tax Sale Law N.J.S.A. 54:5. See Tax Sale process under Taxes.
Our website is www.tax.pburg.org You can access your sewer account by changing the “Search” from Tax to Utility by using the drop down arrow next to Tax. Your account can be accessed by Block and Lot or property location. If a payment is past due interest can be assessed by using the drop down calendar located in the upper right hand side of the screen. Click on the date that we will receive the payment.
Sewer billings are mailed in January, April, July and October.
Sewer Due Dates:
Sewer bills are mailed January, April, July and October. They are due 30 days from the billing date with a 10 day grace period.
Example due February 10, 2015 last day without interest February 20, 2015.
Current Payments can be made at Provident Bank, 190 Roseberry St., Phillipsburg NJ 08865 or at the Sewer Office located at 120 Filmore Street, Phillipsburg NJ 08865.
If making payment in our office we accept check, cash or money orders. We do not accept debit or credit cards.

If you are selling your home and want to receive a final bill for sewer you must contact Aqua to request a final water reading at 1-877-987-2782. Final bills are printed at the beginning of each month (i.e. if you request a final on May 12th the bill will not be processed until June 1st).

All sewer bills remain in the property owner’s name. Delinquent sewer charges are a lienable charge and subject to the Tax Sale Laws N.J.S.A. 54: 5. If you are renting the property the sewer charges are the owner’s responsibility, not the tenant. Whatever agreement is made between the Landlord and Tenant is between the Landlord and the Tenant, and has nothing to do with the Phillipsburg Sewer Utility.
