Residential
Rates

The Springfield Water and Sewer Commission sets rates for water and sewer services in accordance with its Rules and Regulations.  The fiscal year runs from July 1 - June 30. Your water and sewer payments help fund infrastructure improvements, enable compliance with unfunded state and federal regulatory mandates, and rising operations and maintenance costs. Springfield has some of the lowest rates in Massachusetts and the region. Three gallons of Springfield water costs about a penny delivered to your home.
