The Chandler Utilities Billing Office handles all accounting and billing for the water and wastewater utilities owned and operated by the Town of Chandler. Our service area extends beyond the town’s boundaries and encompasses parts of Ohio, Campbell and Boon Townships in Warrick County.

As a municipally owned and operated utility, all rates and fees are established by local Municipal Code. Changes in water rates and charges must be approved by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. The IURC also has oversight on all rates and fees for the wastewater utility.

In addition, the Billing Office manages collection of the town’s Storm Water Management Fee. More information about this fee and its purpose is available on the Storm Water page.

Billing Office policies, procedures, rates, and applications are available below. Additional information may be found on our FAQ page, or by visiting the related links listed below.
