Have questions about the DHH fee on your recent water bill?

The fee of $3.20 authorized by the Louisiana Legislature on April 19, 2000 is for the benefit of the Office of Public Health of the Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH). Under the provisions of the legislation, DHH will use the funds generated by the fee to perform all inspections, tests or procedures of public water supplies to comply with the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. The City of Mansfield collects the annual fee on behalf of the state and transfers the collected funds to the Department of Health and Hospitals each year.
