Those Who Don't Pay Sewer Bill Will Have Water Turned Off, Officials Warn; 10% Late Fee Takes Effect In September

Friday, June 28, 2013

City, county and Rossville officials said in a joint announcement that those who do not pay their sewer bills will have their water turned off.

Officials said, "Beginning January 2013, the city of Chattanooga, Hamilton County Water & Wastewater Treatment  Authority (WWTA), and the city of Rossville were required to bill their customers for sanitary sewer service fees that were previously being charged through Tennessee American Water (TAW) as an item on the water bill. 

"The conversion and transitional period for sanitary sewer service fee billing from TAW is complete. Effective September 2013, all sewer customers with delinquent sanitary sewer service fees will be assessed a 10 percent late fee. Should the customer choose not to pay the delinquent sanitary sewer service fees, a work order will be submitted to disconnect the customer’s water service.

"There are several convenient payment options to pay the sanitary sewer service fee:

Mail your check to our Payment Processing Center
Make your payment through your personal bank bill pay process
By recurring payment, you will find an enrollment form on the back of your bill.

Online through the utilities’ websites: city of Chattanooga, TN at www.chattanooga.gov;
