How much will my water bill be?

There are two parts to the water/sewer bill. The first part is the base rate. A single family house will be billed a $21 base rate per quarter for water and a $40.00 base rate per quarter for sewer. The second charge is the consumption charge. Water is billed at $2.35 per hundred cubic feet and sewer is billed at $5.57 per hundred cubic feet. Each bill will fluctuate due to the amount of water that goes through the meter.


Quick Reference formula for invoice calculation

- (Number of units times $21) plus (consumption times $2.35/hcf) equals quarterly water invoice

- (Number of units times $40.00) plus (consumption times $5.57/hcf) equals quarterly sewer invoice

- (Number of units times rate of fire protection items) equals quarterly fire protection invoice


Note: Franchise areas (specific service areas outside of city limits) are charged a 15 % surcharge for water. Charges are $24.15 base charge and consumption charges of $2.70/hcf. See Tariff for complete rate schedules. Unmetered Sewer Charges are a flat rate of $265.00 and are billed semi-annually by the tax collector.
