Your water usage during the months of December, January & February will determine the sewer portion of your bill for the upcoming year, and the new average will reflect as of the April bill.
Winter averaging occurs at this time because irrigation use is typically at a minimum, and will show a more accurate household usage.
Winter averaging begins when we read your water meter around the 8th of December, and will continue until after the March reading has been taken.
To insure total participation, we ask that you reduce or halt all irrigation use beginning December 1st, and leave it off until you receive your March bill.
Bill messages during those months will also remind you of the ongoing program, and will then notify you when it has ended.
