Calculation of Charges


The charge is calculated from the average metered water use billed in December, February, and March. If no service history is available for this time period, charges are calculated using the citywide average.

When water is not on a metered basis, an estimated water consumption is calculated on a comparison of the non-metered user with a metered user of similar class.

The new average calculation is charged May - April.
