Reading your Utility Billing
How much is a Utility Bill?
The total cost for water/sewer is a fixed monthly charge plus additional consumption charges.
Water Base Charge: $91.33
Water Consumption: $16 minimum for the 1st 1000 gallons ($16 per 1000 gallons there after)
Sewer Fixed Charge: $18.00
Infrastructure Fixed Charge: $3.40
Waste & Recycling: $20
Note: Commercial businesses are charged differently than residential consumers.
How is my 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 rate.
Am I still charged if I don’t use any water?
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.
