How is your Water Bill Calculated?
Water meters measure consumption based on water consumed/gallon. The amount of Water consumption used by your residence is then multiplied by the current water and sewer rates.

There is a minimum charge in order to supply water services to your property even if no water is consumed. This is the fixed charge for the water and sewer system.
