ERHWSC would like to advise you that we had a billing error that was sent out on April 15th which affected 888 accounts. The ERHWSC billing software was updated the day before the bills were generated which caused an error in the multiplier on the Kamstrup meter calculations. The bills which were mailed on April 15th reflected an amount which is lower than it should be. ERHWSC staff has resent 765 corrected postcard bills and 123 corrected email bills. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this error may have caused.
