    Consumption-based wastewater billing: winter water average

    Starting July 1, 2016, a small portion of your utility bill for wastewater is based on the home's water usage during the winter months from October to April.

    • Homes that use less water pay the same as homes that use more.
    • Most cities in the region base some portion of their wastewater utility bill on water usage.
