The City of Oregon City bills monthly for water, sewer, storm drain services and a pavement maintenance utility fee. A statement will be mailed to you at the end of each month and will be due the middle of the next month.
Water rates are based on two elements:
Sewer fees are determined by two cooperating agencies: the City of Oregon City, and the Tri-City Service District. Sewer fees cover the maintenance, operation, debt payments and improvements of the sewer system. Residential fees are billed per dwelling unit. Commercial and institutional fees are billed based on water consumption (one equivalent residential unit (ERU) per water unit).
Storm drain fee is charged to all improved properties within City Limits and is used exclusively to implement, maintain, and improve the City’s storm drainage system.
Pavement Maintenance utility fee is a charge for usage, like your monthly sewer charge. It provides a stable source of revenue to pay for street maintenance allowing for safe and efficient movement of people, goods and services. The street system is a public investment that deserves protection and cost-effective regular maintenance.
Shut off information: If your bill is unpaid 20 days after the billing date, your next statement will contain delinquent and disconnection information. You are encouraged to contact us to discuss payment options if you have trouble paying your bill. If you do not bring your account current or make arrangements with our office, your service will be shut off. Payment is required in full and will accrue additional fees (CPE – collection, processing and enforcement fee, tampering, damage, etc.) . Your bill must be current before service will be restored.
