The Village of Lake Odessa bills quarterly for water service. The water bill is divided into two categories: fixed costs (called "Water Service Charge") and variable costs (called "Water Inside Village" and better known as water usage). The fixed portion of the rate is used to cover fixed costs associated with maintaining the Village's water system. The usage portion of the rate is used to cover the variable costs of providing the services to our residents. Residential water usage is billed at $3.61 per 1,000 gallon increments. Non-Residential usage rates are $7.22 per 1,000 gallon increments. The water service charge is determined by the meter size of a home. All water rates are set annually by the Lake Odessa Village Council.

Please note that the Village of Lake Odessa bills, in conjunction with the Lakewood Wastewater Authority (LWA) (represented on your bill as "Sewer") -- a separate entity from the Village of Lake Odessa -- quarterly for water and sewer service. Please note that the sewer system is maintained by -- and the sewer rates are set annually by -- the LWA, not the Village of Lake Odessa.
On March 15, 2021, the Village Council approved new water rates for residents and non-residents alike. To view a copy of the approved resolution, please click here.
