Repayment Plan Information
In an effort to assist customers with delinquent account balances, Gloucester County Public Utilities recently adjusted the balances owed on those accounts by removing any Late Penalties greater than 10% of the charges for water and/or sanitary sewer service. Those adjustments are reflected in the water/sewer bills mailed in May 2022.
If an adjusted account balance is a credit, future monthly charges for service will be deducted from the remaining balance each month. A customer who still has a delinquent balance on their account, and has not signed up for a repayment plan, must request a repayment plan on or before June 20, 2022, to avoid interruption of service when Public Utilities resumes disconnecting service for delinquent balances.

Public Utilities anticipates resuming service disconnections for delinquent accounts without repayment plans on July 19, 2022. If your service is interrupted because of a delinquent balance, the entire balance, current and delinquent, must be paid before service can be restored.
Thank you for your cooperation with our efforts to address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have any questions about the above, please contact Public Utilities Customer Service at (804) 693-4044 for assistance.
