  • The City of Litchfield would like to inform our residents that in March of 2020 the city office had to begin estimating water bills due to equipment failure. On your bill you will see the letter (E) which stands for estimate. Then due to COVID-19, we have been unable to receive the necessary part to fix the failed equipment; therefore, our office has had to continue estimating water bills. To date our office has not yet received the part needed to fix the failed equipment but it is our greatest hope to receive the part sometime within the next month. Once our office receives the part needed to again retrieve actual water reads, it will automatically start reading thus meaning that your water bill will adjust either up or down due to the read being priorly estimated. Your bill will have the letter (A) which means it’s an actual read. In the meantime, customers can contact our office with an actual meter usage read should a customer be physically able to record and report the meter usage on their water meter. Once the city office has the equipment installed and properly running and actual reads start coming in again, if your water reads have been overestimated it will automatically create a credit to your water account. If your water reads have been underestimated this will result in an increase in your normal monthly water bill.

    The City has not been charging any late fees on any utility bills since this began in March and will not until we can start retrieving actual meter reads again.
