Many Bath Charter Township residents are connected to the public sanitary sewer services provided by the Southern Clinton County Municipal Utilities Authority (SCCMUA). Billing for these services are provided by the Treasurer’s Office. Homes are billed by a flat rate based on a single “residential equivalent unit” or REU. The current REU rate is $87.93 per quarter.

The sewer billing schedule is as follows:

April – June

July – September

October – December

September 15

Sewer accounts paid after the due date are charged a 10% fee. For example, a late $87.93 sewer charge is assessed a $8.79 per REU penalty. Please note that failure to receive a sewer bill does not waive penalty charges. Any unpaid sewer charges from the September 15 of the prior year through the June 15 of the current year will appear on the winter tax bill.

Southern Clinton County Municipal Utilities Authority (SCCMUA) operates and maintains the sanitary sewer system. If you have a sewer back-up, immediately notify SCCMUA at (517) 669-8311 or call 9-1-1 Emergency Dispatch after hours. If a problem within the sewer system is found, SCCMUA is the agency responsible for determining the cause, coordinating claims, and keeping customers informed.
