Summer Sewer Rate Information
We have had comments from our customers regarding summer sewer rates and their ability to know more closely when meter readings begin for the summer rate application in their area.
We recently reduced the number of meter readings and billing cycles from four to two in order to, among other efficiency factors, make it easier for our customers to be informed and understand when summer sewer rate application begins in their area of the system. This will enable sewer customers to take full advantage of this benefit which the city has provided for their sewer customers.
For customers east of Highway 31 (Cycle 1) summer sewer rates will apply beginning with readings taken on March 28, 2018.
For customers east of Highway 31 (Cycle 2) summer sewer rates will apply beginning with readings taken on April 4, 2018.
We hope this information is helpful to you and we will post the dates later on our website to let you know when the summer sewer rate reading period will end in each of the above areas.
About my water meter
A water meter is a device installed in the service line of a home to accurately measure the amount of water that a customer consumes. There are standards set by the American Water Works Association which define the level of accuracy a meter is required to operate at. Meter manufacturers guarantee these standards are met when meters are purchased by the water utility. These standards ensure that water consumed by a customer will be accurately and fairly measured. Despite these standards, there will be situations when a consumer questions the accuracy of the water meter.
