North Manchester owns and operates its own water and sewage treatment facilities. To connect or disconnect service or to pay your monthly bill, you may visit the North Manchester Public Works (Utility) Office at 103 E. Main Street. To reach the office by telephone, you may call 982-9800.

The utility for storm water management was created in 1994 in response to federal and state mandates to eliminate surface (storm) water from our combined sewers. Currently, too much of our surface water flows through the combined sewers which were meant to carry raw sewage to our treatment plant. This prevents adequate treatment of the raw sewage. It also processes the storm water that doesn’t need to be treated, when it should be going directly to the river.

These government mandates meant that we had to begin the lengthy process of installing new storm water lines to separate surface water from raw sewage. To fund this, the Storm Water Management Board established a storm water user fee. Each property owner in the corporation is billed monthly to pay for these changes. The fee is a part of your water, sewer and trash invoice and payment is due by the 15th of each month.

You may call the Public Works Office (982-9800), the Water Plant (982-2993), or the Town Manager’s Office (982-9800 Ext. 376) if you have questions about the storm water user fee.
