Residential & Multi-Family Consumption Tiered Water Rates

Gallons 2017 Rate
2018 Rate
0-3,000 Gallons $2.44 $2.60

Water Consumption Charges

The water consumption charges per 1,000 gallons for residential and multi-family units. Multi-family units receive credit for each unit in the complex when calculating tiered rates.

For example, if a multi-family unit has 50 units, each unit is treated as an individual user when calculating the tiers. In this multi-family example of 50 units using 319,000 gallons the bill would be calculated as follows:

  • 50 units x 3,000 gallon for the 1st tier rate (150,000 gallons)
  • 50 units x 1,999 gallons for the 2nd tier rate (99,950 gallons)
  • All usage above would be at the 3rd tier rate (319,000-150,000-99,950 = 69,050 gallons)
