But here's the basics: 

Water

Your monthly water bill is a combination of two numbers: the amount of water used (Usage Charge) and a Base Rate that covers, among other things, the cost of maintaining our system. This Base Rate is determined by the size of meter you have.

Usage Charge$1.58 per thousand gallons of water used

Base Rate:

1 1/4" $55.60
1 1/2" $70.40
2" $125.14
3" $264.00

Sewer

Your monthly sewer bill is based on the amount of water you used (Sewer Treatement Charge) plus the Base Sewer Rate, which covers, among other things, the cost of maintenance.

Sewer Treatment Charge: $2.90 per thousand gallons of water used

Base Sewer Rate: $30.00 per month
