UNDERSTANDING YOUR BILL

Rates
Water and sewer services, as well as District operations, are supported by the rates that users pay. The District has one uniform rate for operation and maintenance of water and wastewater system throughout the District; however, the water/sewer treatment rate may vary depending on which municipality is providing the treatment services.

Some areas of the District are provided only with sewer services. These are billed as a flat rate on a monthly basis from the District office.

 

New extensions of water and sewer lines are financed primarily through special assessments to benefiting property owners. Oversizing of water & wastewater lines and common facility improvements such as pump stations and water towers are generally financed through revenue bonds (debt payments) supported by user rates.
