  • Water, Sewer and Solid Waste I. Water. The Town of Prosper water meters are read electronically twice daily and the readings are transmitted to DCU’s (Data Collection Units) that are linked to the Town’s utility billing system. Water readings are downloaded for residential and commercial billing at approximately the same time period each month for billing purposes. Water fee is comprised of a minimum service charge and a volumetric charge. II. Sewer. Residential sewer charges are based on the average from water consumed in the months of December, January and February. This establishes a winter average which is used in calculating the monthly sewer charge for the entire year. Each March the sewer is recalculated from data collected from December, January and February. Customers who have not been billed for any of those months will not have a winter average and will cap out at 10,000 gallons for each monthly bill until a winter average has been established. Commercial sewer bill is comprised of minimum service charge and a volumetric charge. I. Solid Waste. Solid waste is picked up weekly with one bulk pick up per month included. II. Rates. Rates are subject to change annually after a rate study is completed by a third party and approved by the Town Council. Current rates are posted on the Town’s website or are available at the Utility Billing Office. III. Payments. Utility payments are due by the 10th of each month. The Utility Billing Office is located at 200 S. Main St. and is open Monday through Thursday 8:00 am until 5:30 pm and Friday 8:00 am until 5:00 pm.
