Residential Sewer billing is based upon water usage. As a general rule, every gallon of water that is used goes down the drain into the sewer. It is also recognized however, that some uses of water (example: washing cars or watering your lawn) does not go down the drain and it is not appropriate for sewer to be charged for these uses. This is why the City of Belton offers two sewer billing options to our residential customers.
You may select which option works best for you when your water/sewer account is started. If you decide to change your billing option for the sewer part of the bill you may do so. However, we do require a signature and a new Sewer Billing Option
form must be filled out and returned to City Hall by mail, email, fax or in person.
