Sewer Charge Calculations:

Yearly in February, effective for March’s billing, we recalculate a sewer charge based on the average water consumption the customer used during the months of November, December and January.  For residential customers (sewer rate SW01) and commercial customers (SW02), we currently calculate the charge by multiplying the average usage X the sewer rate.  A base service charge is added to the calculated amount. If the customer’s water meter serves multiple services, (apartment buildings, duplexes, etc,) an additional base service charge for each additional service is added onto the charge. 

The resulting calculation is the charge the customer will be billed for sewer for the next 12 months.

Default Charge for the following customers until average can be established and new sewer calculations take effect March 1st of each year.

  • New Customers, (not transferring from another OPU location)
  • Transferring customers (customers transferring from one OPU location to another OPU location – including transfers between landlords and tenants)

Default charge = the applicable monthly fixed charge based on their water meter size + $8.00 (4.28 ccf * $1.87)
