What Are The Metered or Consumption Rates?

This is your water usage. The amount charged for every 1,000 gallons you use.

Non-Warrington = $4.76
Warrington = $3.96

What Is The Summer Conservation Charge?

This charge, sometimes referred to as the excess use charge, is designed to promote conservation. It is only activated during the peak outdoor water usage months of April through October. It is calculated by averaging the number of gallons from your two winter quarter bills, then adding 40%. That total is then compared to 12,000 gallons for quarterly customers, or 4000 gallons for monthly customers. The greater of the two numbers is used as your conservation allowance. Once you have exceeded this summer allowance, a conservation charge of $1.60 per 1,000 gallons is added to your bill for every 1,000 gallons you are over your allowance.
