Residential sewer charge "winter quarter average"

PigThe residential sewer commodity charge is based on what we call the "winter quarter average" or your water consumption during the winter months. The sewer charge on your bill covers the cost to treat the water and waste that enters the sewer system from your home. The sewer system is an open unmetered connection and cannot be metered. Because of this, we use your winter time water consumption to determine how much water is used indoors, and therefore the amount of water that enters the sewer system. 

For billing cycles 1, 2, 3, and 4, the water consumption beginning with your December meter read and ending with your February meter read is used to calculate a new sewer commodity charge. This consumption is reflected on the February bill and the new sewer commodity charge goes into effect on the April bill. The new commodity charge will remain in effect for one full year  

For billing cycles 5, 6, 7, and 8, the water consumption beginning with your November meter read and ending with your January meter read is used to calculate a new sewer commodity charge. This consumption is reflected on the January bill and the new sewer commodity charge goes into effect on the March bill. The new commodity charge will remain in effect for one full year

Why is my bill so high?

First check to see if you have a leak on your property. Go to our maintenance page for more information about leaks. If there is no leak, here is a list of items to consider:

  • Check irrigation timers
  • Was a swimming pool just filled?
  • Was a hose left running?
  • Are there more people living in the home?
  • Did a toilet have a leak?
  • Did you just put in new landscaping or a lawn?
  • Have you recently experienced power outages at your home? If you have, it could mean your irrigation timer is reset to its default factory settings, which may cause your timers to go off on non-watering days or times. In addition to resetting your clocks and other electronic appliances after a power interruption, don’t forget to check your irrigation timer as well.

These are just a few areas to check. If you still have questions, please call Utility Billing at (530) 642-4000.
