Permanent Sewer Commission:
The Permanent Sewer Commission consists of a board of five commissioners who oversee policy and major sewer upgrade projects, etc. The commissioners meet once a month. Monthly meetings are held at the Hull Town Hall, 253 Atlantic Avenue, Hull.
Ninety-nine percent of the homes and business are now on line with the Towns’ sanitary sewer system.
Sewer user charge bills are based on each individual property owners water usage and issued from this department twice a year, in early March and early September. They are always six months in arrears as we purchase our information from Aquarion Operating Services.
The Permanent Sewer Commission recommends that if you do a lot of outside watering or have a sprinkler system, that it would be in your best interest to invest in a second deduction meter. This meter measures the amount of outside water use that does not go through the sanitary sewer system and this amount will be deducted off the spring bill. Homeowners are sent a postcard and asked to record their reading and return to the Water Treatment Facility.
This meter must measure cubic feet and be installed by a licensed plumber. You can purchase this meter on your own or have your plumber purchase it for you. After the meter is installed, either you or your plumber must call us with the following information, meter serial number, placement in the basement and then we can seal and read it.
We issue sewer permits for new building, rehabs, cap offs and properties not currently connected to the sewer system, i.e.; our last project was in the Straits’ Pond/Rockaway Area of Town.
If you are selling your home don’t forget that you, your realtor or attorney should give us a call for an estimated sewer user charge figure, as sewer is billed in arrears.
