With the heavy irrigation season in front of us, we want to remind residents about the impact of outside water usage on your residential utility account(s). The May through October utility bills follow the summer calculation structures. Summer sewer charges are based on the residential home’s average usage in the preceding winter months. Summer water usage is charged at the regular tiered rate structure and a 4th tier rate goes into effect. Here is irrigation information and a few reminders: - The City allows the maximum outdoor usage of 30,000 gallons/month during the summer months. Once that max is reached, all gallons used will be charged at a 4th Tier (summer) rate. - Residential properties are allowed to water on odd/even days based upon their house number. - Irrigation is not allowed between 9AM and 7PM on any day. This measure helps to combat unnecessary evaporation of treated water. For more information on City conservation efforts and tiered rates please call 952-442-3107.
