Stormwater Fee FAQs

Beginning with July 2017 utility bills, HWU customers will see a new line item for a “Stormwater Fee” on their utility bills.

The amount of the monthly “Stormwater Fee” will be $5.00 for most residential customers.

The stormwater fees are based on the size of the customer’s water meter.  Most residential customers have a water meter size that is less than one inch.  Many commercial and industrial customers have water meters that are larger than one inch.  Meter size is being used as a proxy for the stormwater impacts associated with the size of a customer’s facility.

Please read HWU’s FAQ document, in PDF file format, for answers to questions you might have about the “Stormwater Fee”.  The 2-page FAQ document is available via the following link:

FOG
Fats, Oils, and Grease

Sewer pipes become clogged over time and can cause sewer backups in your home or sanitary sewer overflows (SSO).  During a SSO, untreated wastewater can flow onto streets, into storm drains, and into public waterways.  All of these can result in health hazards, expensive property damage, and threaten the environment.  This will also increase the costs associated with operating and maintaining the City’s collection system.

Welcome to Henderson Water Utility’s Website.  This site contains information about Henderson, Kentucky’s Henderson Water Utility, the services we offer, and other information of interest to the community.

The Water and Sewer Commission meetings are normally held at the Bobby Gish Administrative Building located at 111 Fifth Street on the third Monday of each month at 4:30 p.m. local time.  Please call 270-826-2421 if you have any questions concerning the meetings.

Henderson is a “Combined Sewer System” community.  In the older parts of the city, we have combined sewers that channel both sanitary and stormwater to the wastewater treatment plant when it rains.  In newer parts of the city, we have a separate storm sewer system.
