How is bulk water billed?
A separate utility account is set up for bulk water service. You will receive a statement for each month the bulk water service is used. This statement includes a service charge of $28.02 and a consumption charge. The consumption charge is calculated by the amount of water you withdraw. When there is no consumption charge, no service fee is charged. The table below details the current bulk water rates:
