Frequently Asked Questions

How much is my water bill going to cost?

The amount on your monthly water bill will vary depending on your family size and water usage. The amount of water you use in a month changes depending on how many showers are taken, how much laundry is done, if the yard is being watered, and so on.

You will also notice a change in your bill if you have company for a long week-end, or your family visits for a period of time.  This change is due to more showers, laundry, and general water usage.

What are we charged for on the Wolcott utility bill?

On the first of each month you will receive a bill from the Town for water usage. Readings are from the 15th to the 15th of the month. Bills are due and owing upon receipt. Customers have until the 15th of the month to pay their bill before a penalty will be added to their bill and a disconnect notice sent out.


Your bill reflects charges for more than just water. It also includes sewer usage, storm water and trash collection.
