How is my sewer bill calculated?
Belterra residents that conserve water during the months of December, January, and February will reap the rewards all year long. Monthly sewer charges will be determined by averaging the usage of these 3 winter months. Why this time period? This is the time when water consumption in not impacted by outdoor water use due to the cooler temperatures. Your water meters are typically read around the 7th-10th of each month. Therefore, we recommend that you decrease or cease irrigation use by December 1st and do not resume until you have received your March bill. You will also see messages on your water bill during these months reminding you that winter averaging is session.
