How do I read my Utility bill?
There are three parts to your Utility bill, Refuse (Garbage & Recycling), Water, and Sewer. For Water and Sewer there are fixed rates and also volume charges based on usage.
Most residents have a 5/8" or 3/4" meter so the base cost or fixed rate for Water is $54.00/quarter and Sewer is $22.02 plus Refuse of $32.75/quarter for a total of $108.77 per quarter or $36.25 per month.
Then there is the usage or volume charges. Water is $6.40 per thousand gallons & Sewer is $8.76 per thousand gallons. This is the rate for usage under 20,000 gallons. Your meter is read every quarter and estimated in between for any monthly bills.
