What are water service charges and fees? How often will I receive a bill?
The rate that applies to most of our customers is for a 3/4-inch water meter. For this sized meter, the bi-monthly rate is as follows: a service fee of $44.11 and a water usage fee of $3.55 per 100 cubic feet. (There are approximately 750 gallons of water per 100 cubic feet.). Larger meters have different rates and the rate schedule for these meters is available at the District office.
A meter reading service reads the meters every 2 months. The time period between the current meter read and the previous meter read is approximately 2 months of water use. District staff processes the information and generates your bill. Bills are mailed out approximately the 15th of February, April, June, August, October, and December. The due date for these bills is the 10th of the following month. (For example, bills sent out around February 15th are due and payable on the 10th of March.) Customers whose accounts are not paid are considered delinquent and risk having their water turned off as well as additional fees charged to their account to turn their water back on.
