How are sewage charges calculated into my bill?

Sewage charges are reflected upon the water usage for customers who have water service through us or the City of DuBois. For those customers who have sewage but are on a well for their water, meters have been installed to monitor your well usage and your sewer charges are based on that, just as a regular water customer's would be.
