There are two parts to the water/sewer bill. The first part is the base rate. A single family house will be billed a $21 base rate per quarter for water and a $37.23 base rate per quarter for sewer. The second charge is the consumption charge. Water is billed at $2.35 per hundred cubic feet and sewer is billed at $5.20 per hundred cubic feet. Each bill will fluctuate due to the amount of water that goes through the meter.
Quick Reference formula for invoice calculation
- Number of units times $21) plus (consumption times $2.35/hcf) equals quarterly water invoice
- (Number of units times $38.59) plus (consumption times $5.38/hcf) equals quarterly sewer invoice
- (Number of units times rate of fire protection items equals quarterly fire protection invoice
