Columbus Utilities summer sewer discount starts on July bill

Columbus City Utilities will begin its annual summer sewer allowance program after your June meter reading.

The city adjusts the sewer bills, as a way to offset outdoor watering that does not actually make its way into the sewer system. Once your water meter has been read in June, your July bill will begin reflecting the allowance discount on your sewer charges. The Summer Sewer Allowance runs from June to September.

You can also purchase an irrigation meter through the Columbus City Utilities office, which will let you sprinkle your lawn, water flowers, and use water for other outdoor activities without paying the sewer charges on your water consumption.
