Sewer averaging for the winter months begins on October 24, 2020, and will continue through March 6, 2021, for cycle billing. Water usage over this period determines your sewer charge for the next billing year, which begins April 1. The water usage readings will be averaged and the average per thousand-gallon usage per month will be multiplied by $4.46. That total will be added to the base rate of $13.54 for residents with an average below 12,000 gallons.
For residents with usage greater than 12,001 gallons, the first 12,000 gallons will be multiplied by $4.46 and the portion of the average above 12,000 gallons will be multiplied by $10.12 and that total will be added to the base rate of $13.54 for residential use. The final calculation result will be your sewer charge for the next 12 months.
