How is the sewer charge on my water bill calculated?

Sewer charges are based upon water usage during the winter months. To calculate sewer use, the City reads your water meter during the winter months to determine a quarterly average. This is beneficial for our customers because water use is substantially less in the winter. However, if a customer's current actual water use is less than the winter average, then the sewer charge is based on actual water use.

I just bought a house in Maple Grove and have received an outstanding water bill. Do I have to pay this bill if I didn’t use the water?

A water bill is considered a lien against the property. Your real estate agent and/or title company should inform you of any outstanding water bills during the purchasing process, or you can call us at 763-494-6330 for that information. If these remedies do not work, the bill must be paid by current homeowner. 

Why is my water bill so high?

Water bills are based on how much water is used. Watering the lawn or garden will increase usage, as will the addition of occupants in the home. Leaks can also lead to an increase your water bill.

If your bill is higher than usual or you have any questions about your bill, call us at 763-494-6330 or send an email to

Why was my water bill "estimated?"

It's possible your water meter’s remote data device may have stopped transmitting, or your water usage may have been flagged as unusually high or very low for your property. If your billing statement reads “estimate” next to the water consumption reading, you should contact us at 763-494-6330 to determine the cause of the estimate.
