Summer Sprinkling Program
Summer Sprinkling Program Requirements & Application
For some customers, 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.
The District adopted this program for owner-occupied one, two, three and four family residences (service and mailing addresses must match). There is no fee for the application or to participate in the program. Homeowners must provide information for this application and do not have to reapply each year, but another application is required if they move.
