Subsidence (Groundwater Reduction Plan / GRP) Fee

  • For all water used, there shall be a surcharge of $2.20 per thousand gallons.

Multiple-Dwelling Units

  • The monthly water usage charge for a multiple-dwelling unit that is separately metered shall be calculated by applying the rates established for single-family residences.
  • The monthly water usage charge for a multiple-dwelling unit complex that is master metered shall be calculated by dividing the total water usage by the total number of dwelling units and applying the rates established for single-family residences. The monthly water usage charge for such multiple-dwelling unit complex shall be determined by multiplying the charge per dwelling unit by the total number of dwelling units. The number of dwelling units for mobile home and travel trailer parks shall be determined by calculating the number of available spaces.

Combination Residential and Commercial / Industrial Users

  • Combination residential and commercial / industrial users whose primary activity is not commercial /  industrial related will be classified as multiple-dwelling units and will be charged using the multiple-dwelling unit formula at 100% of the minimum single-family residence monthly usage and rate.

The deposit will be refunded after all water charges have been paid and if there was no damage to the fire hydrant or meter.
