Sewer bills are sent on a quarterly basis. The sewer bills are based on your quarterly water use measured by a water meter usually located in your basement or utility closet. Most locations are equipped with a remote meter that allows it to be read from outside the building. Water meters are the property of and are read by the Bangor Water District. Sewer bill inquiries can be addressed by calling 207-992-4470.
Sewer bills are considered past due 31 days from the billing or postmark date, whichever is later. Bills can be paid by cash, check, money order or MasterCard credit card. Please include your bill stubs with payment and note the account number on your check.

Failure to pay your sewer bill may result in a lien against your property. Landlords who expect their tenants to establish their own sewer accounts and pay their sewer bills should take care to insure that these bills are paid in a timely manner to avoid liens, interest, and lien discharge costs.
