Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Conservation Usage and how is it determined?

The Conservation Usage shown on your bill is the quantity of water you consumed above the monthly allowance for your meter size (10 units for a 3/4" meter per billing period) and below the Conservation Tier Limit (40 units during the summer and 30 units during the winter, per billing period). Your Conservation Usage is billed at a rate of 10 percent less than the regular quantity charge per unit of water.

The Conservation Tier Limits were determined by calculating the amount of water needed for a family implementing water conservation measures to the maximum extent practicable.
