The City of Elkton operates a water distribution system and sewer treatment facility. The monthly utility bill consists of a charge for water usage, sewer usage, and solid waste collection. The City contracts with Waste Management for residential garbage collection.

Utility bills are typically mailed on the 23rd of each month and are due on the 7th of the following month. If the bill remains unpaid after the 7th, a 10% penalty will be charged to the bill. If the bill remains unpaid by 9:30 AM on the 16th of the month, a $50 service charge will be added to the bill and the utility service will be disconnected.


While the city operates and maintains a water distribution system, we purchase treated water form the Logan-Todd Regional Water Commission. Logan-Todd receives its water from the Cumberland River near Clarksville, Tennessee. The plant has the capacity to produce 20 million gallons per day of treated water. It is projected that will meet the needs of this area for the next 50 years. Current estimates requires the plant to produce approximately 11 million gallons of water per day.
