New Residents

Here is some information that new residents might find helpful.

Monthly Billing Cycle
Garbage, recycling, and water utility fees are billed monthly. Garbage is $12.20 per month and recycling is $6.70 per month.

Water Deposits
When you hook up to the Bittern Lake water distribution system you are asked to pay a one time deposit for your water meter. After 24 months of clear payment history and no other incidents, this deposit is refunded. If you qualify for a refund, please request in writing to the CAO, and your refund will be issued.

A water connection application must be submitted to the Village Office when you move into Bittern Lake.
