Many Bath Charter Township residents are connected to the public sanitary sewer services provided by the Southern Clinton County Municipal Utilities Authority (SCCMUA). Quarterly billing for these services is conducted by Bath Township. Homes are billed by a flat rate based on a single “residential equivalent unit” or REU. The current REU rate is $112.12 per quarter (as of January 1, 2021).
The billing and payment cycle for sewer is as follows:
- January – March: Billed/Mailed on December 15; Due January 15.
- April – June: Billed/Mailed on March 15; Due May 15.
- July – September: Billed/Mailed on June 15; Due July 15.
- October – December: Billed/Mailed on September 15; Due October 15.
Sewer accounts paid after the due date are charged a 10-percent fee. For example, a late $112.12 sewer charge is assessed a $11.21 per REU penalty. Please note that failure to receive a sewer bill does not waive penalty charges. Any unpaid sewer charges from the September 15 of the prior year through the June 15 of the current year will appear on the winter tax bill.
