Wastewater Monthly Volume Charge per 1,000 Gallons
*Note: Average winter water usage will be used during the following year to calculate the monthly volume charge.
Usage from December 2013 through February 2014 is averaged and used as the basis for the monthly wastewater volume for determining charges from March 2014 through February 2015. So, if your water usage for December was 4,952 gallons, for January was 4,426 gallons and for February was 3,872 gallons, total usage for the three-month period in this example would be 13,250 gallons.
This total amount would be divided by 3 to determine a monthly-average - 4,417 gallons in this case. This monthly average would be rounded down to the nearest 1,000 gallons for billing purposes, or 4,000 gallons. If the three-month have had been 4,500 gallons or higher it would have been rounded up to 5,000 gallons.

Wastewater billings will be based on an average of 3,000 gallons per month until actual usage is available to determine the winter average.
