Water Service

Water Volume Charges


The amount a customer is charged for volume is based on metered consumption, and also varies depending upon whether you receive service inside or outside the city.

Water Use Reduction Tips


  • Limit your water usage to the amount in the monthly base fee to reduce your costs. If you use this amount or less, you will not be charged additional water usage or consumption fees.
  • Use low water use plants and drip irrigation to reduce your water consumption. About 50% of water used in a typical residential home is for outdoor landscaping or swimming pools.
  • Reduce your consumption in December, January,and February of each year and you could reduce your annual sewer costs. Your monthly sewer charge is calculated on your water usage in those months.
