Water and Sewer Rates

The City of Flushing approved increased water and sewer rates for all residential and commercial customers. The rates will take effect July 1, 2016. Customers will experience these increases on their water and sewer bill after July 1, 2016.

The water rate increase was necessary due to the increased cost of water from the city’s supplier, City of Detroit. Nearly 70% of expenses in the City of Flushing’s Water Fund are associated with the cost of water purchased from the City of Detroit, through the Genesee County Drain Commissioner, Water and Waste Services Division.

The sewer rate increase was necessary due to the increased costs in maintaining, updating and repairing the city’s waste water treatment plant, sewer collection system and pump stations.

Residents are able to make monthly payments to their water/sewer account through City Hall.

The new rates are as follows:

Water Readiness to Serve charge: $80.00 per quarter for all customers

Water usage charges: $5.14 per 1000 gallons for all customers

Sewer Readiness to Serve charge: $40.00 per quarter for residential customers

Sewer usage charges: $3.73 per 1000 gallons for all customers

Flat Sewer charge: $135.30 per quarter
