Wastewater Service Charges
Monthly minimum wastewater charge for City water customers, based on size of water meter with a 400 cubic feet volume allowance:
||Minimum Monthly Bill
|Less than 1"
The commodity charge for wastewater service to all customers shall
be set at $1.38 per CCF. The commodity charge shall be calculated
based on 90% of AWC* in excess of the volume allowance included
in the minimum charge. The minimum and commodity charge will be
set through the following February billing cycle.
*Average Winter Consumption (AWC) is the average amount of water
used during the most recent December, January and February billing
The commodity charge for new customers will be calculated using
the class average AWC by meter size for their respective class until
they establish an AWC base.
Charges for services less than the normal 30-day reading cycle
shall be calculated in the same manner as a full reading cycle.
Wastewater service to facilities where all or part of the water
supply is obtained from other than the City water system shall be
charged on the basis of the actual wastewater volume as estimated
by the Utility or as measured by a meter installed at the customer's
expense, except as provided herein for certain residential properties.
The charge for such wastewater service shall be $14.49 per month,
plus $1.38 per hundred cubic feet of the total actual or estimated
wastewater volume for all users.
Where the wastewater service charge is based on water consumption
and the use of the water is such that a considerable portion thereof
is not returned to the sanitary wastewater system, the user may,
at his option, install a meter for the purpose of measuring such
water that does not return to the wastewater or a meter to measure
the amount of wastewater actually entering the system, and the monthly
wastewater charges shall be based on the difference between the
two water meters or on the readings of the wastewater meter, whichever
is applicable. Meter installations as described herein shall be
made at the users expense. The charge for wastewater service based
on actual volume of wastewater shall be $16.69 per month plus $1.38
per hundred cubic feet of the total measured wastewater volume.
Wastewater charges are based on the "normal" quality
(or strength) of wastewater. A surcharge shall be added for strengths
exceeding the normal limits based upon analysis of samples taken
by the Utility under provisions of the Rules and Regulations, and
upon the quantities of wastewater determined by the same methods
used to calculate the regular wastewater charge. The surcharge shall
be 15.0 cents for each pound of BOD in excess of 300 parts per million
(ppm), plus 14.0 cents for each pound of suspended solids in excess
of 300 ppm.
Permit fees for Wastewater Discharge Permits (two types) and Waste
Hauler Permits shall be as follows:
|| $1,090 per year
| Non-categorical Industries
||$218 per year
||$109 per year
