2024 Water Rates & Fees

Monthly User Fee:
Water Rate Charge:
$4.60 per every 1,000 gallons used
( Or $0.0046 per gallon )

Your monthly bill is calculated by using the following calculation:  Usage X Water Rate + Monthly User Fee.

If you do not use any water you still must pay the monthly user fee.

Below are two examples of how to calculate your water bill.

The first example would be to take your water usage in gallons and divide that by 1,000. Then multiply by the water rate of $4.60. Then you would add the $14.00 monthly user fee. If you used 4,450 gals in a month, you can calculate it like this:

4,450 gallons (usage) divided by 1,000 gallons multiplied by $4.60(water rate per 1,000 gallons) plus $14.00 (monthly base rate) = $34.47

In the second example, you may also change the formula by using the rate per gallon ($0.0046). Here you would multiply your water used by $0.0046 then add the monthly base rate of $14.00. Below is an example using the same usage above of 4,450 gallons:

4,450 gallons (usage) multiplied by $0.0046 (water rate per gallon) plus $14.00 (monthly base rate) = $34.47
