Sewer Averaging Information


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 to calculate your monthly bill.  Residents are able to impact annual bills to some extent by conserving during these four months.  New residents may request a three-month consumption history that may be used to adjust your bill below the 7,000 gallon District average.

All sewer adjustment requests must be submitted by April 30, 2024 for consideration

The base fee in the example below is based on a 5/8" meter size:

 Base Fee     $9.00
