How is my bill calculated?
The prior quarter's reading obtained from your water meter is subtracted from the current reading. The difference between the two readings is the number of gallons used for the quarter.

The number of gallons used is then multiplied by the rate of $2.95 per thousand gallons used. This will give you the dollar amount for the actual water consumed.

To that amount, there is a base charge amount for the size of the meter in your home. The typical size meter for a residential home is 5/8", which has a $20.50 base charge.

The water consumption charge is added to the base charge to determine the water charge on your Combined Utility Bill.
