Springfield Utility Board

Rates & Billing

SUB bills monthly for water and electricity used in the previous month. As a convenience, your bill also shows City of Springfield sewer charges. That way, you need only write one check for your water, electricity and sewer/stormwater, and the City (and its taxpayers) saves significantly on the cost of mailing statements.

Your bill is based on your consumption as recorded by your household water and electric meters from the first day of the billing cycle to the last. It shows how much that usage costs given current electric and water rates. Click here to see a sample SUB bill.

At SUB, we record and bill water consumption based on units. One unit of water is equal to 748 gallons.
