Water & Sewer

The City of Barnesville is pleased to provide quality water and sewer services to our residents and businesses. 


Water meters are read monthly. If the meter reader is unable to read your meter, that month’s usage may be estimated or a card will be placed on your door asking you to read the meter. The card must be returned to City Hall, or the reading phoned in, by the 10th of the month in order to avoid paying a penalty.
