Questions About My Bill

Everyone in the district pays for sewer service through a combination of monthly fees and yearly taxes called Ad Valorem. Monthly fees are currently $40 per EDU, and Ad Valorem taxes are .1801% of your property value.

Fees and Taxes

The average user pays an estimated $62 a month. That’s well below the market in Indianapolis, so the Ben Davis Conservancy District benefits most residents in our community.

Any returned checks, closed accounts, or e-checks entered incorrectly will incur a $30 NSF fee.

Monthly Fees

A single-family home pays $40 a month for service.
Equivalent Dwelling Unit

Yearly Taxes

That home also pays .1801% a year of its value for access.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an EDU?

An equivalent dwelling unit or EDU is a unit of measure equal to 310 gallons of wastewater per day. The typical single-family home pays one EDU a month, but a multi-family home or non-residential property pays additional units for service.

What is Ad Valorem property tax?

The Latin phrase ad valorem means “according to value,” so your Ad Valorem is tax based on the assessed value of your property.

Why are there fees and taxes?

Monthly fees pay for operating expenses and project development. According to the Indiana Conservancy Act, your taxes can only pay for operating expenses. That’s why the Conservancy uses a combination of fees and Ad Valorem taxes to pay for both its operation and development.

Why did my bill change?

Our sewage is treated by a plant owned and operated by Citizens Energy Group. In recent years, the group has increased its prices. Additionally, your Ad Valorem tax is based on your property value and will change with the housing market.
