The District bills for water and wastewater service on a monthly basis. The amount of the bill is calculated from monthly water meter readings applied to the current rate structure. See below for current rates.
The rate includes 1) monthly base rates for water and wastewater, 2) monthly fees based on usage (variable fees), 3) water and wastewater reserves, and 4) an annual tax levy on all benefitted property in the District or an equivalent Special Tax Equalization rate for properties annexed after December 23, 2015. The money collected from the user charges and the annual tax levy/equalization rate generates revenue sufficient to make tax bond payments and to operate the District. The moeny from the reserve rates will be held for future expansion or replacement of major infrastructure.
The water and sewer rates for property connected to the water and/or sewer system are authorized by the Board of Directors of the District. The District has adopted Rules and Regulations that establish all rates and charges.
The District has several customers located outside of the District. They have a service contract with the District and are charged 1.5 times the applicable rate that customers in the District pay. They are not included in the tax levy, and they do not vote in District matters.
