MeterSave Program

Senior Citizen Sewer Rebates

Rebates on water bills are available to residents 65 years of age or older. You must own and occupy the property to receive the rebate. There are two types of rebates, depending on whether you have a separate water bill or share a meter with other units:

01. Senior Citizen Water Exemption

If you have your own water meter and receive a water bill solely addressed to you, you may apply for the Water Department Senior Citizen Exemption. This will exempt you from future sewer charges on your water bill. Only buildings zoned as single family homes (and townhomes with individual water meters) qualify for the senior citizen exemption; buildings with 2 units, even if used as a single family home, do not qualify for either the exemption or the rebate.

To be eligible for the sewer service charge exemption, fill out the complete application here. More information is available on the Department of Finance’s website.

02. Senior Citizen Sewer Charge Refund

If you share a water meter and pay a water bill in conjunction with other units in your building or complex, you may apply for the Senior Citizen Sewer Charge Refund from the Department of Finance. The amount of the refund is $50.00 per calendar year. The rebate program only applies to condos, townhomes, and co-ops. You must file for this refund on an annual basis. Fill out the complete application here. More information is available on the Department of Finance’s website.
