Winter Wastewater Averaging
For residential customers on the City’s retail water and wastewater service, the city bases monthly wastewater charges on your water consumption for November, December, January and February.  The city takes the three lowest consumptions, averages them, and uses that average to set your wastewater charge for the entire year.  An account must be active the entire four months to establish an average. All other accounts will be charged the city-wide average.

If you have a water leak during this time period, making your water consumption noticeably higher than usual, you need to notify the Utility Billing Office.  A copy of the plumbing bill or receipts from the purchase of plumbing supplies will be required no later than May 1. Upon consideration, your wastewater average may be adjusted appropriately.  Commercial wastewater charges are based on actual monthly water consumption. For questions, call 512-990-6100.
