Frequently Asked Questions each Spring

If I fill my pool, will it raise my Sewer Rate on my Utility Bill? No, filling your pool will only raise your Water Bill for the amount of water you use. Sewer Rates are not affected by filling your pool.

Does running my Lawn Sprinkler raise my Sewer Rate on my Utility Bill? No, running your Lawn Sprinkler will only raise your Water Bill for the amount of water you use. Sewer Rates are not affected by running your Lawn Sprinkler.

Why did my Sewer Rate change recently? Residential sewer rates are calculated each year based on your water usage (in 1,000 gallon and 500 gallon increments) in three months: December, January, and February. The highest month is thrown out. The remaining two months are averaged. Your new Sewer Rate is the average of the lowest two months, multiplied by $4.02 for each 1,000 gallons. Added to that is the Sewer Minimum Charge. The Residential Sewer Minimum Charge inside City Limits is $27.55. The Residential Sewer Base Charge outside City limits is $39.03

Example: You live inside the City limits. In December, you use 6,000 gallons of water. In January, you use 5,000. In February, you use 7,000. Your March through February Sewer Rate is based on 5,500 gallons (the average of January and February). Rates are $4.02 per 1,000 gallons. Multiply $4.02 times 5.5 (equals $22.11) and add the Residential Sewer Minimum Charge of $27.55, for a total of $49.66.
