For some residents, residential water use increases during the summer months because of lawn sprinkling and other seasonal use. But most of this additional water does not return to the sewer system. For this reason, the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District offers the Summer Sprinkling Program, in which summer residential sewer bills are based on either average winter water consumption, or actual summer water consumption, whichever is lower. The program is in effect each year from May 1 through September 30. If you qualify, your bills during these months will likely be lower.
To participate in the program, your sewer bill must reflect charges from the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District. If it does not, you are not eligible for the program.
For questions or to see if you qualify you can call 216-881-8247 and talk with NEORSD directly.
