Procedures for Final Sewer Bills

Congratulations on the purchase of your new property in Independence Township!

For homes connected to Independence Township sanitary sewer, please contact our office at (248) 625-8222, to make sure the billing has been switched into your name and that a final bill has been ordered.

We require a 24-48 hour notice to prepare sewer bill for the seller/owner. To order a “Final Bill” an address change form needs to be completed and can be found under “Forms & Permits” on our website or by contacting the DPW office at (248) 625-8222 and requesting the address change form be emailed or faxed to you.

The sewer bills stay with the property, which means if a final bill was not scheduled, and then the new owner of the property will be responsible for any outstanding balances if they apply.
