All City of Battle Ground utility bills are mailed out on the last business day of every month and are due on the 20th of the following month. For example, if January 31st is the last business day of the month, the bill is sent out on that day and is due on the 20th of February.
For 2018, the minimum monthly bill for new customers is $83.71 per month, which includes the first 3 units of water usage. For further information, please visit the Utility Services and Rates page.
The city offers a number of ways to pay your utility bill.
There are two types of automatic payments that customer's may enroll in with The City of Battle Ground.
Minimum monthly charges are required for the maintenance and upkeep of the water, sewer, and storm drainage infrastructure.
Customers who are in past-due (delinquent) status receive a late notice stating as much. The past-due notice contains important information, including the amount owing for immediate payment, and the final date payment will be accepted without further penalty.
Should the utility account remain in past-due status upon the beginning of the shut-off day stated on the bill, a $27.00 administration fee will be assessed on the account, and services will be terminated.
Any customer who is disconnected for non-payment shall not be reconnected until the pastdue balance is paid in full.
After-hours reconnections (those made after 5:00pm) will include an additional charge of$95.00, which will be added to the account and due with the next regular-bill.
For utility bills, a "unit" of water is 100 cubic feet, or approximately 748 gallons of water.
An industry-standard Winter Water Average is used to determine your sewer consumptionand rate for the year. The utility department averages your water usage for the months of Dec., Jan., Feb., andMar. and uses this average consumption number as your sewer usage until the next WinterWater Average is determined.
For new customers, this average is set at 6 until an average can be determined.
Shut-off day varies month-to-month. Please refer to the utility cutoff calendar for the current months' cutoff date.
The city does not estimate water consumption.
It is not unusual to see the same amount of water consumption on your bill for consecutive months because water consumption is billed in increments of 100 cubic feet (approx. 748 gallons).
Furthermore, the first 3 units of water are included in the water utility base rate, meaning that if the customer consumes 1 unit or 3 units of water, the amount owing on the bill will be the same.
