When are water bills due?
I would like to get water service at a residence/business. What should I do?
To have the water turned on at an address, you will need to provide the following:
1. Water Application, Water Application (Spanish) (4 pages)
2. Copy of proof of ownership/lease agreement
3. Copy of driver's license or ID of applicant(s)
4. $200.00 deposit (3% card fee will be added if paying by debit or credit card)
Water services can be connected during regular business hours before 3:30pm.
What are the forms of payment accepted for water bills?
What is wastewater reaveraging?
Because it is not possible to calculate wastewater/sewer usage, the city takes an average of the water usage for December, January, and February, as these typically have the lowest water usage. The residential sewer rate is a base minimum of $20.00, with $3.50 per thousand gallons over 2,000 gallons. That rate is then applied to your water bill for the next year.
What fees are on my water bill?
WATER is calculated from your usage each month. The charges are $30.00 for the first 2,000 gallons and $8.05 per thousand gallons over the minimum.
WASTEWATER is calculated from a yearly re-averaging of water usage for the months of December, January, and February. The charges are $20.00 for the first 2,000 gallons and $3.50 per thousand gallons over the minimum. This fee is the same throughout the year until the next re-averaging. New residents have a $20.00 wastewater/sewer fee until the re-averaging.
GARBAGE is a set fee of $15.50 per month. This increases with the number of garbage canisters or for businesses.
TAX is based on your garbage rate at 7.5%.
