What are service charges?
Service charges are fixed charges applied to all customers regardless of consumption. These charges help maintain basic functions of water treatment, water distribution, customer service, infrastructure maintenance and fire prevention. These costs are also fixed for the district regardless of water production.
What are commodity charges?
Commodity charges reflect the amount of water actually used by a customer over the billing period. Revenue generated from water usage also supports fixed charges. However, the rate structure is designed to promote conservation and responsible water usage by charging customers who use smaller amounts of water less money.
