Sewer billings are based on the customer's AVERAGE water consumption from October through March of the previous year.

Once the Winter average is established, the monthly charge is calculated by multiplying the amount by $5.43 (the charge per thousand gallons) plus a $5.57 base charge. This rate remains the same for 12 months...until the next annual water consumption report.

New Residential
The new residential rate is $39.78 (flat rate) until the customer has established a Winter water consumption average from October through March. In April the rate is adjusted as above according to this new average consumption.

Commercial and Industrial
Customers' monthly bills are based on the actual water used as reported monthly by the water company.

The same rate applies, $5.43 per thousand, plus a base charge determined by the size of water meter (or combination of meters) they have.
