Residential: In addition to the base rate, residential customers will pay for usage at $3.10 thousand gallons. The usage is based on a winter average determined from usage during December, January and February each year. Residential customers obtaining service anytime after December 1st of the year will pay for sewer usage based on the gallonage consumed. After a residential customer has had service during a complete winter averaging cycle (December, January and February), gallonage will be charged based upon the winter average.

(Amendment Feb 9, 2006) – Due to events associated with Hurricane Rita, the Board of Directors approved that Residential Customers Sewer Winter Average has been suspended for the 2005-2006 year and the District shall use the 2004-2005-winter average.

Commercial: In addition to the base rate, commercial customers will pay $3.10 thousand gallons for usage during any one billing period.

 c)  A regulatory assessment charge of one half percent (½%) of retail water and sewer charges will be added to the customer’s monthly billing in accordance with state requirements. The assessments will be remitted by the District to the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (Commission) and are to be used by the Commission in performing its regulatory duties and in providing training and technical assistance to utilities.
