​​​Pro-Rated Water Charges

​Depending on when a water meter is activated, first homeowners in new subdivisions may be subject to pro-rated fixed charges on their first water bill. Fixed fee pro-rating is based on the following guidelines:

Water meter activated 0-45 days into the billing period = 100% of flat fees charged 
Water meter activated 46-76 days into the billing period = 50% of flat fees charged
Water meter activated 77-90 days into the billing period = 25% of flat fees charged

In addition to any pro-rated fees, all customers are charged the water consumption rate based on metered water usage during the billing cycle.
