Manchester Water Works (MWW) and the Department of Public Works’ Environmental Protection Division (EPD) will combine water and sewer bills into a single water bill starting in 2015. A single bill combining water and sewer will provide many benefits to the customer, including increased billing efficiencies, a single point of contact, and fewer delinquencies. Work has been ongoing in preparation for combined billing for over a year. A single bill for water and sewer service is standard industry practice. Many New Hampshire communities including Concord, Derry, Dover, Keene, Portsmouth, Rochester, and Salem already provide a single bill for water and sewer service.
To prepare for this change, a synchronization of water and sewer billing periods is required. As a result, an accelerated sewer billing schedule will be implemented starting July 28, 2014. Customers will be required to pay their sewer bill in the same standard 30 day time period from date of receipt. The schedule for water billing will not change. Once the billing periods are synchronized, on or around the week of September 7, 2014, customers will receive a separate water and sewer bill, at approximately the same time, for the remainder of 2014. Starting in January 2015, customers will receive a single bill from Manchester Water Works with both water and sewer charges included.
More information will be shared with customers during the remainder of 2014 as we move forward. We look forward to working with our valued customers during this period to create a more efficient and effective billing system for your water and sewer service and wish to thank our customers for their patience during this transition.

Important Notice to Manchester Water Works Customers
Recently a number of our customers have received correspondence from American Water Resources of New Hampshire (AWR) and a company called HomeServe. For a fee, these companies are offering to reimburse for repair of the water line on the customer’s property.
It is important to note that MWW is not affiliated or partnered with either of these companies, nor do we support their solicitation or claims of service. We have not and will not share any customer information with them.
Also and coincidentally, we have been public with our intention to offer this service to our customers later this year. At that time you will receive information about the program from us, Manchester Water Works directly. Our program will be run locally by your utility with local support.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call Phil Croasdale at the Manchester Water Works at (603) 792-2825.
