Utility Billing Rate Schedule 2017 

What is a Unit?

  • 1 unit = 100 cubic feet = 748.052 gallons.
  • A container five feet long by five feet wide and four feet high holds one unit of water.

Water Rates

  • Sewer Rates:  Base upon water usage until summer water rates are applied.
  • Summer Water Rates are in effect after your April meter reading until your October meter reading.  During this time frame, the monthly sewer charge uses the "winter average" rather than the actually usage.
  • New Accounts:  Will be assigned "5 units" as the average until it can be recalculated.
  • Winter Average:  Based on the average amount of water used on your November through May billing  of each year.
  • Winter Vacancies:  Residents whose homes are vacant during the winter months will be assigned "5 units" as the average.
