Beginning in 2018, the Milton Regional Sewer Authority is AGGRESSIVELY working on collections of past due sewer accounts. You will be given a chance to bring your account current with a past due notice. Once we send certified letters notifying you of water shut off, your account MUST be paid in full. No partial payments will be allowed. If your account is not paid in full by the water shut off date, PA American Water will be notified to shut off your water and it will not be turned back on until you bring your account current.
The MRSA also uses a collection agency for past due bills. The collection agency charges an additional 30% to collect past due bills.
Billing Information and Rates

Payment of bills may be made by check, money order, Automatic Clearing House (ACH) withdrawals or pay by major credit card. The options are outlined below:

Pay Online or by Phone – You will be directed to another site for credit card processing and there is a convenience fee for this service.
ACH (Automatic Clearing House) is a payment system that automatically withdraws the amount of your sewer bill from your checking or savings account on the due date. Using this option will save you money in postage, and save you time by eliminating the need to write checks. It will also ensure that you do not miss a payment. The form can be downloaded below. Please return the form with a voided check.
You can also use this form to sign up for email billing. You may also call Customer Service at (570) 742-3424 to request an ACH form or sign up for email billing.
Generally once the MRSA processes your ACH application it will take one billing cycle for the service to be activated. At that point the Authority will automatically draft or debit the amount of your bill from your selected bank account. Until that time, please remember you will need to pay your current bill by another method. You will continue to receive a bill by mail or email detailing your usage, amount due and amount that will be automatically deducted.
