BECKLEY SANITARY BOARD
Bills are due when rendered and are delinquent after 20 days. The due date on the current bill does not apply to any past due amount. A ten percent (10%) penalty will be added after 20 days. Failure to receive bill does not relieve the customer of the penalty. We are not responsible for the U.S. Postal Service delivery.
The sewer rates are higher than the water rate because it is more expensive to treat sewage.
No. We bill weekly based on billing cycles. These cycles are determined by when the water company reads your water meter.
Your deposit will be refunded after 12 months of on time payment, with no penalty. If you closed your account before it is refunded, we will apply your deposit to your final bill. If there is a credit after the account closed, we will refund that amount to you.
You can pay the bill by 8:00 am the day of disconnect in the office or drop box.
If you cannot pay by 8:00 am the day of disconnect, you can sign a Payment Agreement if eligible. Payment Agreements must be signed by the account holder.
IF 2 DEFERRED PAYMENT AGREEMENTS ARE VOIDED WITHIN ANY 12 MONTH PERIOD, THERE WILL NOT BE ANY PAYMENT AGREEMENTS ALLOWED FOR THAT CUSTOMER FOR 1 YEAR. NO EXCEPTIONS.

We do try our best to have your service reconnected the same day. We reconnect service in order that the customers come in. However, PSC does allow a 24 hour period for your service to be restored. If you are not going home, please make sure all your faucets are turned off so your meter does not run. We allow enough time for your tanks to fill up and if the meter does not quit running, we will have to turn your water back off and you will have to call the office during regular business hours and notify us you are home and remain at home until we are able to come back out.
