Water and Sewer bills are issued based on consumption. With the new meters we will be able to eliminate estimates and you will be billed based on actual usage. When comparing your bill with a neighbor keep in mind everyone’s habits are different. The same size family, with the same size house, etc, will have different consumption as one family may do more laundry, take longer showers, leave the water running while shaving or brushing teeth or doing dishes. Other factors such as water saving appliances, and conservation efforts will also make a difference in consumption.
