Only two things can increase the amount you are being billed on your monthly bill: increased rates or increased water consumption. Rates for water and sewer services are adjusted using the Consumer Price Index and go into effect on October 1st of each year. Please click here for water utility rates. Increased consumption could be due to many factors. The most common ones are: House guests, Running Toilet, Dripping Faucets, and Pressure Cleaning.
No, the City only maintains and monitors water and sewer lines on the City’s property for this type of activity. All water and sewer lines from the meter to and within the dwelling are the responsibility of the property owner. However, to assist, the City has provided some very helpful do-it-yourself tips that you can do before calling out a professional. Please check the web-site for Detecting Leaks.
The Utilities Department bills for water and sewer services based on the reading on your water meter. Each month, your water meter is read either manually or via mobile drive-by devices. Sewer charges are based on your water consumption.
Yes, but there may be a cost associated with your request. First, you should contact customer service to review your account and offer you some do-it-yourself tips on how to detect leaks or click here for leak detection information. If you determine that you want the reading verified, you will be charged. However, if it is determined that your meter was read incorrectly, those charges will be removed and your account will be reviewed for an adjustment.
Possibly yes, but it depends on the type of leak and the nature of the repair. You will need to provide back-up documentation including repair bill detailing the work done or provide copy of dated receipts for items used to repair such as chemicals, rented equipment, etc. that correspond to the time the increased consumption appeared on your bill. Please check the web-site for Sewer Credit or Click Here.
Minimum monthly charges for water, which includes from 0-3,000 gallons is $18.45 and minimum monthly charges for sewer, which includes up to 3,000 gallons is $23.61 Additional rates are posted on the web-site under Water-Utility Rates or click here.
Yes, certainly! But some restrictions apply. The City does not issue credits for a partially drained/filled pool or for “topping off” a pool. You will also need to provide back-up documentation including repair bill from pool company detailing the work done or provide copy of dated receipts for items used to repair such as chemicals, rented equipment, etc. that correspond to the time the increased consumption appeared on your bill. Please check the web-site for Pool Credit or Click Here.
