The average utility bill for residential accounts is $128.97 (based on 2018 usage and 2019 rates).
This includes a charge of $48.48 for wastewater, which is a winter average of 4,000 gallons, a fixed $11.98 drainage fee, and a water charge of $68.51, which is an average usage of 8,000 gallons.
Remember that the water charge is based on actual usage so this amount may fluctuate on a monthly basis. In addition, the wastewater rate is determined by the winter average, which is the water usage for December, January, and February. See the water and wastewater rate schedules for additional water and wastewater charge calculations. We apply a one percent (1%) penalty to all accounts which are not paid in full by the billing due date.
