Paying your bill is an investment in the District’s future to ensure
that we can continue to provide you and future generations the
high-quality service you deserve. Due to aging infrastructure,
the District needs to invest more in repairing and replacing
thousands of feet of water and sewer mains. Starting January 1,
2019 your sewer use charge will increase by 18 cents per 1,000
gallons. Starting February 1, 2019 your water use charge will increase
21 cents per 1,000 gallons. Your service charge will not change.
How Our Water Rates Work:
Our tiered rates are an effective
and equitable way to accurately
link utility costs and customer
charges. The tiered rate structure
means that you are charged the
lowest rate for indoor use. When
usage increases to the higher
tiers, usually for irrigation, this
results in higher charges.
How are Our Sewer Charges Calculated?
Sewer charges are calculated based
on your winter water use in the first
billing period of the previous year. This charge
does not change until the following
year when your winter use is reset.
This is done because the sewer flows
are not metered like water and it’s the
fairest way to calculate what goes
down the drain for wastewater
treatment so that outdoor water use
is excluded from the sewer charges.
