Utility Service & Billing

The City of Rogue River provides excellent drinking water and sanitary sewer services to each property within city limits. At a single family residence, monthly minimum service costs for a new customer in 2020 are $54.95.

  • Water - $15.80
  • Sewer $34.15
  • Public Safety Fee $5.00

This is based on usage up to 500 cf of water, and a flat fee for sewer services until consumption averages are established after a winter of residency. These rates are expected to increase in calendar year 2021.

To establish an account, citizens are required to pay a deposit of $150.50 (by cash, check, or money order) and provide the following information: Full name(s), mailing address, a valid driver’s license, last four digits of their social security number, date of birth, email address, the number of occoupants in the home, and the date of residency in the home.

Billing is done in the arrears. A paper bill will be mailed to the address on record the beginning of each month for consumption measured from the previous month. Payment is due to the city within two weeks. A delinquent account is subject to disconnection, at which time unpaid charges and a reconnection fee may be assessed. Payments may be delivered via USPS or brought to City Hall and made by cash, check, or money order. At this time, the City of Rogue River does not offer online billing or payment services.
