Can Landlord Have tenant pay public sewer and water bills in the lease?


I have a house that I am renting out in Middletown Rhode Island. I have always had in the lease that the tenant pays all utility bills, including specifically water and sewer bills. Is this legal to do- my current tenant is questioning it, and I dont want to do anything illegal…
