*Per 1,000 gallons

Charges for wastewater services shall be computed on the basis of the lessor of:

  • the customer’s current monthly water bill, OR
  • the average amount of water used by the customer during the winter season, based on the average of the monthly readings of the customer’s water meter for the preceding December, January and February

If a residential customer does not have an established history of water usage during the preceding December, January, and February, the customer’s monthly wastewater bill shall be calculated based upon: (i) the customer’s current monthly water usage; or (ii) on the basis of 3,000 gallons water usage per month, whichever is less.

If a nonresidential customer does not have an established history of water usage during the preceding December, January and February, the customer’s monthly wastewater bill shall be calculated based upon the customer’s current monthly water usage.

Approved designated irrigation meters will be exempt from wastewater charges. An irrigation meter is defined as metered water service for purposes other than household use.
