Sewer Wastewater

The City of Battlefield operates the sewer collection system. New customers are required to complete an application and pay a deposit of $75 for home owners and for rental properties. Homeowners may receive a refund of the deposit after three years of clean payment history. Residential sewer rates are based on a $28.85 base rate plus $5.59 per thousand gallon average water used during the period of the average setting time of the previous year. The City charges $0.06 for (DNR-Department of Natural Resources-fees as well) for residential usage.  Please see City Ordinance regarding 700.490 Basis for Computing Residential Bills.  All commercial accounts are metered usage on a monthly basis with at $29.98 base charge. The City charges $0.25 for (DNR-Department of Natural Resources-fees as well for Commercial accounts). Payments are due by 5:00 PM on the 5th day of the month and may be made by mail, in person at City Hall or by use of our drop box on the sidewalk at the north end of the City Hall parking lot. Accounts that are two months delinquent will be notified of service disconnection via a paper tag on your door. Disconnections which occur for non-payment will result in your water service being shut off. To re-establish service after a disconnect, all accounts must be paid with CASH, debit or credit card, or money order including a $30 re-connect fee. If you pay after 4 p.m. you will be charged an additional $20 for after hours fee, so the total reconnect fee is $50.00.  To avoid this fee pay before 4 p.m.  Contact the City Collector at (417) 883-5840 for further information or to establish an account.
