Navigation Bullet Water and Sewer Due Date

Due and Auto Pay Date: Due February 6, 2024 - Extended to March 6, 2023

Billing Period 10/1/23 - 12/31/23

Make Remittance To:
Borough of Lavallette Water Utility
1306 Grand Central Avenue
Lavallette, NJ 08735

January Water / Sewer & Electric Bills mailed to 08735 appear to have been lost in the mail.

After a higher than normal amount of phone calls from residents regarding not receiving their utility bills, we have reason to believe that bills mailed to Lavallette on January 4th have been lost in the mail.

This appears to have affected both the electric bills and the water / sewer bills mailed to the Lavallette zip code. The post office is looking into this matter, as of now we are planning on reprinting the water/sewer bills mailed to 08735 and adding the current electric bill to the next electric bill.

Both bills will have an extension before they are considered late. The extension would make the current electric past due after March 4th and the water/sewer after March 6th.

AutoPay for both will occur on the original due dates of February 1st for electric and February 6th for water / sewer as the majority of the AutoPay users also get E-Bills and will be expecting the withdraw.

Account balances can be checked using our Account Inquiry and you can also reprint your bill. Homeowners within the 08735 zip code can expect to receive a replacement water/sewer bill unless you have already paid the bill.
E-Bills are also available for both utilities.

Navigation Bullet Pet Waste

Pet Waste

Clean and plentiful water is important to our families, our environment, our economy and our quality of life.
Did you know that animal waste from pets can pollute our waters? When left on the ground, pet waste is washed by rain and melting snow and ice into storm drains that carry it to our rivers, lakes, the ocean and drinking water. Animal waste contains a high concentration of nutrients as well as bacteria and disease-causing microorganisms that can cause problems.

What you can do

Pet owners or anyone who takes your pet for walks must properly dispose of the waste by picking it up, wrapping it and either placing it in the trash or flushing it unwrapped down the toilet.
Your municipality is required to adopt and enforce local pet-waste laws. At a minimum, your community must require that pet owners or their keepers immediately and properly dispose of their pet’s solid waste deposited on any public or private property not owned or possessed by that person. People with assistance animals such as Seeing Eye dogs are exempt.

Make sure you know what your municipality requires – and follow it.
Thank you for doing your part to keep New Jersey’s waters clean.

Navigation Bullet Tips for saving water inside your home

Water Chart

Bathroom ~ Bathroom use accounts for about 75 percent of the water used inside the home.

  • Check regularly for any leaks in your toilet, faucets and water hose bibs and fix them.
  • Install a low-flow showerhead.
  • Replace older, larger-use toilets with the newer higher efficiency toilets.
  • Take short showers and save the baths for special occasions.

Kitchen ~ About 8 percent of in-home water use takes place in the kitchen.

  • Wash only full loads in the dishwasher. An efficient dishwasher usually uses much less water than washing dishes by hand.
  • Install a low-flow faucet aerator, which can cut water use in half.
  • When buying a new dishwasher, consider purchasing a water-saving model. (New models use up to 25 percent less water than older ones.)

Around the house.

  • Wash only full loads in the clothes washer. Washing small loads uses over twice as much water per pound of laundry.
  • When buying a new clothes washer, consider purchasing a water-saving model.
  • Insulate hot water pipes where possible to avoid long delays (and wasted water) while waiting for the water to "run hot." When building a new home, keep the distance short between the hot water heater and showers and other places that hot water is used.
