Wastewater/Sewer

New residents are billed based on an average usage of 7,000 gallons until the winter average is established. The District uses a sewer average based on four (4) months water consumption from November through February of the previous year to calculate your monthly bill. Residents are able to impact annual bills to some extent by conserving during these four months. Upon request, a six-month consumption history may be used to adjust your bill below the 7,000 gallon District average.

If the payment due date is a Sunday or District approved holiday, payment can be received without any penalties on the following business day.
