Rates & Policies

Listed below, you will find our current rates and policies. Effective date: February 1, 2020.  If you do not find the information you need, please contact our office and we will provide it for you.  Meters are read on the 27th of each month. Bills are mailed at the end of each month.  If you do not receive your bill by the end of the first week of the month, please contact our office at 281-8700. Payments are due by the 20th of each month.  The mail slot in the front door of the Entranosa Office is available 24 hours a day.  In addition, Entranosa has installed a drive-up payment box at the office to make it easier for members to pay their bills.  Accounts not paid by the 20th of the month, will be assessed a $10 penalty.  Accounts 30 days past due will be assessed an additional penalty of $20.00. A disconnection notice will be sent by the 10th.  If payment is not received in full by the 15th, services will  be disconnected.

In addition, Entranosa Water & Wastewater Association provides scheduling and coordination of wastewater service as part of maintenance contract with members. Members are set up on a maintenance schedule to have their septic tanks pumpmed once each one to three years, depending on septic tank size, number of people in household, and usage factors - varying in charges as to frequency of pumping. If members do not know when their system was last pumped, we will schedule for pumping at the time of the start up to the program.
