- Departments & Services
Did you lose power and need to contact your electric provider? Not sure how to pay your water bill? Curious about residential energy conservation and efficiency programs? Here are some important resources regarding utilities for Scarsdale residents.
Electric and Natural Gas
Con Edison is the electric and natural gas service in Scarsdale. If you have a power outage, other electric issue, or natural gas problem, make sure to report the issue to Con Edison. For emergencies involving life safety, call 911 or Con Edison at (914) 722-1200.
To track the status of any power outage, check the Outage Map for status updates.
You can also contact Con Edison to start, transfer, or stop electric or gas service.
Water and Sewer
The Water Department maintains our local water and sewer infrastructure, as well as the billing for the over 5,000 accounts served. Learn about the water quality in Westchester and what to do if you have discolored water.
Water Rates and Billing
The Village purchases water from New York City, which utilizes roughly half of Scarsdale’s budgeted expenditures, with the balance funding the operation and maintenance of the water pumping and distribution system. Scarsdale's water rates are established and adjusted periodically to reflect New York City’s rates, while maintaining fairness and equity relative to other Westchester municipal water utilities. View the most up-to-date water rates.
Water meters are read and billed quarterly, except for large water users, who are billed monthly. If you receive your bill and your water bill is higher than normal, read our water conservation tips. Many high water bill complaints are due to lawn sprinkler systems, so checking for leaks or broken heads is a good place to start!
Quarterly bills are mailed to users on February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1, of each year and are due no later than the end of those months. Residents can choose to pay their water bills in person at Village Hall or online.
