How much will my water bill cost?
Water bills are sent out quarterly (4 times a year).
The water bill reflects a base fee (determined by the size of your meter) + a usage fee (how much water was used).
Most residential homes require a 5/8-inch meter, which has a base fee of $96/year paid quarterly at $24.
