|** Base / Minimum monthly rate||$14.30|
|Consumption per 1,000 gallons|
|1 to 20,000 gallons||$4.08|
|20,001 to 40,000 gallons||$5.10|
|More than 40,000 gallons||$6.12|
Sewer charges consist of two components – base rate and consumption. An industry-standard Winter Quarter Average (WQA) is calculated using December through February water consumption. Since water usage like outdoor watering and filling swimming pools is higher during summer months, the winter months are used to calculate your average because they provide a better picture of indoor water/sewer usage. The WQA determines the number of units you will be billed for sewer beginning in April each year. For new accounts, until the WQA can be established, actual water usage is charged for sewer. The maximum units charged for sewer is eight.
|** Base / Minimum monthly rate||$15.25|
|Unit cost per 1,000 gallons, max 8,000 gallons||$4.29|
*Water and sewer rates apply to residences inside the city limits. Rates increase 15% for outside-city-limit delivery.
**The base fee applies monthly regardless of consumption.
