Please take empty plastic bags to any large grocery, pharmacy, or big-box store in RI and deposit them in the designated collection bin. You may also include dry cleaning bags, newspaper bags, bread/bagel bags, bubble wrap, over-wrap from cases of plastic beverages as well as cereal and cracker liner bags.

We have recently changed our billing format to make it easier for you to read and understand your water/sewer bill. Water meters are read on a quarterly basis, and bills are generated and mailed accordingly. The minimum charge is billed in advance, while the excess usage charge (if any) is billed in arrears (for each preceding quarter). Wastewater Rates
Property owners in Narragansett are either serviced by SUEZ Water RI (a private company located in Wakefield – if you are a SUEZ customer, your water bill will come directly from them, and you may contact them at 401-789-0271) or the Town of Narragansett. Town water bills are based on a minimum charge, which includes the first 6,000 cubic feet (44,880 gallons) of usage annually, and then a consumption charge for usage that exceeds the initial 6,000 cubic feet. Roughly 60% of our customers fall within this minimum annual usage allotment. The current water usage rates may be found on the rates page.
