Billing Rates

Residential Rates


All residential customers are billed quarterly standard service charges for water, sewer, storm water, recycling, and state assessment, in addition to the usage charges for the actual water and sewer used. If you are connected to the city water and sewer system, but don’t use any water for a particular billing period, you will still receive a billing for the standard service charges. The only way to not have to pay these charges is to have the city actually dig up the water connection to the home at your own expense.


Calculate Water Usage


To calculate your usage for water and sewer, we measure the flow of water to your home through the water meter. During the winter months we bill the usage for both water and sewer according to your meter reading.

In the summer months, in recognition of the extra water usage outside that doesn’t flow through the sewer, we use your winter average water usage to calculate your sewer maximum. This maximum is applied to your account so that when you reach your sewer maximum, you are not charged for usage beyond that amount for the sewer portion of your billing.
