Sewer Rate - Winter Water Average

The sewer minimum rate is calculated using a base rate plus a set usage, which varies depending on whether the property is residential, multifamily, or commercial.

Residential/Multi-family sewer rate maximums are set annually on individual residences using February, March, and April meter reads. An overall average rate is also calculated and assigned to those residents without valid usage history during that time period (until an individual winter water average can be established).

Using less water during this time period (aprox. Jan. 15th thru Apr. 15th) will lower the average used to calculate your sewer maximum. This means that you will not be charged sewer for such things as watering your lawn and washing your car, as you will only be charged up to your set sewer maximum. In addition, if your water usage is less than your sewer maximum, you will only be charged sewer on that usage. In short, your sewer charges can fluctuate between your sewer minimum and your set maximum based on your usage.

Commercial sewer also has a set minimum, but water-in is water-out for commercial accounts.
