Pay Your Hellertown Water Bill

News and Updates - Winter 2016 - 2017

Drought Update

The most important news is the declaration of a Drought Warning Stage by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection in November. This reflects that Monroe, Carbon, Lehigh and Northampton Counties have been significantly below the normal precipitation levels. Streams and rivers (surface water) and groundwater levels are in decline. All customers should reduce their normal usage by five percent. When Spring 2017 arrives, we may have to impose more significant restrictions including a ban on lawn watering and other outdoor uses.

All customers and property owners will be receiving a letter with their January bill that will include details on any rate adjustments that are being made for 2017. Rate changes will go into effect for the bill issued in April (for usage in January, February and March.) The letter will also review our completed projects for 2016 and review those planned for 2017.
