Sewer Rates

Bevington and Peru Sewer Customer,

Starting January 1st 2019 the rates for the sewer system will increase.  This increase is due to a couple factors.  In the past, the rates have not been able to completely cover the total operations, maintenance, and payroll expenses for the sewer system.  Starting in January the increase will move Bevington and Peru towards having the sewer rates cover all of the sewer expenses.  This will be a multiyear process with incremental increases every year to get the rates where they are able to completely cover costs.  This will be started off by increasing the monthly minimum, and also increase the per thousand gallon charge for anything over 3,000 gallons.  (See “rates” on this site for new rates.)

The sewer systems are in great working order and no major expenses are foreseen. Warren Water is continually striving to keep costs down with routine maintenance.  The best way you can help to keep costs low is to only discharge acceptable materials in the sewer system.

PREVENTION OF FROZEN METERS

It’s about that time of year again…….Every winter we have a few customers experience frozen water meters due to their meter not being protected from the freezing Iowa temperatures.  An insulation pillow has been installed in everyone’s meter pit.  This helps protect the meter against freezing during the cold months.  This pillow can be dislodged sideways by high ground water or by someone not inserting the pillow properly after inspecting for a possible leak.  Please help keep District costs down by preventing meter and regulator freeze-ups by insuring the pillow is lying flat and not sideways and that the lid is properly in place.  Once you inspect your pit, let any snow that falls cover it.  Snow acts as insulation, so don’t disturb it.  Should you have any concerns about your meter pit please let us know.
