Water & Sewer Bills

Important: If you are enrolled in the automatic payment program the notice stating "please do not pay as direct debit is set up for this account" will not be printed on your March 2021 water bill as a result of a printing error.  Please be assured, you are still enrolled in this program.  If you wish to confirm you may email utilitybilling@essex.org.


Beginning in 2021, Town of Essex Water and Sewer bills are issued three times per year in March, July, and November due in April, August, and December on the due date stated on the bill.  Payments may be mailed or paid at the Town Office. The bills were sent to property owners on a short time ago. Water customers who did not receive a bill should call 802-878-1359.

Payments may also be placed in the drop box (no cash please) next to the main door of the Town Clerk’s Office until midnight of the due date. Postmarks are accepted as evidence of timely payment.  Payments received after the due date will be charged an 8% penalty.
