The city of Oakwood’s mission of providing the highest quality water, sewer, stormwater and refuse services at the lowest cost possible takes into consideration the equipment and infrastructure needed to provide those services. The infrastructure includes buried infrastructure, such as water and sewer lines, as well as above-ground infrastructure, such as water towers and pump stations. The minimum charges cover the cost to maintain the equipment and infrastructure and invest in necessary capital improvement projects. The minimum charges are billed regardless of occupancy or usage.
For billing purposes, 1 unit (usage) of water = 100 cubic feet = 748 gallons of water.
The city of Oakwood relies on the city of Dayton and Montgomery County to treat the sanitary wastewater within Oakwood.
The city of Oakwood charges a monthly management fee to administer stormwater runoff in compliance with the EPA’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) standards.
The city of Oakwood operates a comprehensive refuse collection and disposal program, including special pick-ups, dumpsters and a leaf mulch program. The monthly residential charge is $30.
