Where does the Town water come from?
The Seabrook water system is supplied by groundwater pumped from five gravel-packed wells and seven bedrock-wells located in the western part of town. The gravel-packed wells range from 50 to 125 feet deep. The rock-wells are 500 feet deep.
What time frame does my bill cover?
The water and sewer billing is quarterly for all residential customers and some lower usage commercial customers. High usage commercial customers will continue to be billed monthly. Starting January 1, 2019, each account will be charged based on the size of the meter, plus the usage, on a tiered rate. All fees can be found on our website at www.seabrooknh.info – under the Water Department tab, click on the “Fee Schedule” link.
