The Water Department is open 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Town has gone to a quarterly billing system, therefore water bills are mailed the first of February, May, August and November. Please mark these months on your calendars to avoid a late fee as failure to receive a bill does not waive penalty.  If you do not receive a bill the first week of these months, please contact the office, 754-8213.  Any error in bill must be reported before the due date.
Each year on September 1
st all unpaid balances will be levied to your Town and County tax bill, for the ensuing year.

Water Department responsibilities include installation, maintenance and repair of water meters and hydrants, locating services for water facilities as needed for contractors, public services entities and residents, performing water inspections for all new and existing houses and businesses as required and reading water meters. Call 716-754-8219 for maintenance questions.

To arrange for a new service or for an emergency during business hours, please call (716)754-8213, ext. 235 or 236.  For emergency calls after hours or during the weekend call (716) 754-8291.
