General Information for Customers


All accounts are placed in the property owner’s name.  Accounts cannot be placed in the tenant’s name even at the request of the property owner.  The City of Fulton Code dictates that any unpaid bill is a lien against the property, not the occupant.  Because of this, the property owner is ultimately responsible for any unpaid charges and is billed directly.


Sewer bills are on a quarterly billing schedule.  Your bill may also have water usage, base water and garbage charges on it if you receive these services from the City of Fulton.

·          Sewer Usage is determined by water usage through meter readings.  Your usage is then multiplied by your rate and is your Sewer Usage charge.


Our service area is divided into the following three districts:

District 1:  Customers located on the West Side of the Oswego River receive bills in March, June, September & December.   Your account number begins with 1.


District 2:  Customers located on the East Side of the Oswego River with property South of Rochester Street receive bills in January, April, July & October.  Your account number begins with 2.


District 3:  Customers located on the East Side of the Oswego River with property North of Rochester Street receive bills in February, May, August & November.  Your account number begins with 3.


Customers are given a minimum of twenty (20) days to pay their bill.  Any bill not paid on or before the due date will be assessed a 10 percent penalty.  Failure to receive a bill does not abate the timely payment of that bill.


Payments can be made in person or by mail: 

  •  Fulton Water Department, 141 South First Street, Fulton, NY 13069
