Final Water Bills
When the ownership of a residential or commercial property is scheduled to change, the City of Somerville Water Department generates what is known as a Final Water Bill for the property. The Water Department will conduct a final water meter reading for the property, typically one day prior to the scheduled closing date. Based on this meter reading, the Final Water bill is generated.
The Water Department requires three (3) business days for a final bill to be processed. The fee for the final bill is $25.00. An expedited final bill can be processed with one (1) day service and can be obtained for a fee of $50.00.
The Final Bill form can be obtained in the Water Department main office or via the following link. Once you pick up your final water bill from the Somerville Water Department (17 Franey Road) you must take a copy and ensure payment is made at the Treasurer’s Office within City Hall (93 Highland Avenue). Once the final bill is paid in full, the Water Department will change the billing information to reflect the new owner’s information.
