WATER - This is the charge for all the water you have used in your home from the water mains. Every time you water your garden, wash your clothes or use water in your home, you pay a rate which is measured in 1,000 gallon increments. During the summer months, residents might see a higher water bill because more water is used for irrigating lawns, therefore higher water consumption. Water meters, located inside your home, provide the Board with the information of how much water was used at your home/business. On average, water bills are based on 30 days, depending on holidays and how the billing cycle align.
