Sewage Usage – Change in Heidelberg Billing Procedures
Effective August 2012, your sewage / wastewater charges will be billed directly to you monthly from the Borough, rather than being included on your Pennsylvania American Water Company (PAWC) bill.
This divestiture in billing services was initiated by PAWC across the entire Commonwealth; thus leading to Heidelberg Borough Council and Mayor contracting the services of Diversified Technologies of Bloomsburg, PA, to perform our monthly sewage billing. All consumption charges and monthly service fees will remain the same, and will be billed based on your actual water usage.
To ease this transition, automatic cash transfer (ACH) direct billing and paperless billing are being offered. Attached are two separate applications should you desire to take advantage of these opportunities. I ask that if you want to participate in these programs that your applications be returned to the Borough Office by Monday, August 13, 2012.
It needs to be stressed that the last bill you received from PAWC for consumption through July 2, 2012 was the last sewer bill you will receive that is commingled with water usage from PAWC. All payments sent to PAWC after August 8, 2012 will be applied to your water balance and not credited towards any outstanding sewage balance.
