Department Duties and Responsibilities
The Water Department was created in November 2001 after acquiring the water lines from Summit County. It consists of two areas, Water Billing and Water Distribution. Under the direction of the Finance Director, the Water Billing Department is responsible for billing, collecting, and accounting for over 10,000 customers. The Water Distribution Department, under the direction of the Service Director, is responsible for maintaining, servicing, and repairing the water lines.
The Stow Water Billing Department bills Stow water customers monthly for their water usage. Water consumption is currently billed at $3.49 per 100 cubic feet with an administrative flat fee of $2.43 per month.
