Upper St. Clair residents will be getting a new bill, starting in October.
For more than five years, residents have been paying for their water and sanitary sewer usage together in one bill sent from Pennsylvania American Water Co. However, as Upper St. Clair Patch reported in April, the water company is discontinuing its billing for sewage nationwide.
Residents will now receive their sewage bills from Jordan Tax Service.
It is not a new fee; the water bill will decrease by the amount of the sewage bill and the sewage bill will instead come monthly from Jordan Tax Service, which will continue to follow the formula set by the municipality and ALCOSAN based on household water consumption.
As another payment option, residents may pay the sewage bill in person at the township tax office, located at 1820 McLaughlin Run Rd.
If a resident has a question about the new billing procedure, please contact Dan Berty of the finance department at 412-831-9000, Extension 202.
