So what does this chart mean? It tells you what your minimum amount due will be for each quarter and how much water you can use for that billing tier.
A residential customer with a 3/4″ meter size will be billed a minimum of $22.90 for the quarter whether the customer uses 0 gallons or 5,000 gallons.
What if the same customer exceeds the allowance and uses 10,000 gallons?
The customer will be billed for the $22.00 plus $5.88 for each 1,000 gallons over 5,000. The water charge for 10,000 gallons of usage will be $52.30.
