Novi Water & Sewer Billing Facts

1. The City of Detroit uses meter data to record the City of Novi’s actual maximum day and peak hour usage factors. These maximum and peak hour usage factors have resulted in increased costs to us as our use patterns have changed since the 1980s. We are promoting ways to lessen our maximum and peak hour usage factors from Detroit in order to lower future Detroit rate increases to us. 

2. New users of the system pay for all water and sewer line additions. Therefore, Novi’s rates do not contain any amount for expansion of the system.

3. Nearly 80% of the water and sewer system is complete and paid for. As a result, the only outstanding water or sewer debt is for the North Huron Rouge Valley Sewage debt, with the final payment in 2009 (no direct City debt for Novi’s infrastructure).

4. Over 75% of the City’s water & sewer budget (excluding depreciation) is for payments to the City of Detroit Board of Water Commissioners and Water Resources Commissioner for water and wastewater services.

Novi has one of the lowest markups on Detroit’s water rate. Our mark up of 17.35% is far below the 125% average markup of most communities.
