Water used is charged at the same rate as your house meter.  However, you are not charged sewer therefore reducing your bill by almost half.


Residents planning to leave for an extended period of time must contact the Utility Clerk of the dates that they are out of town. Residents should leave their service on and will receive a normal monthly billing.


Dripping faucets and whistling or hissing toilets waste water, even when no one is using them! Toilets often have “silent” leaks too. Here’s a handy way to tell:

Carefully take off the top of the toilet tank.
Put 5 drops of food coloring into the tank.
Wait 20 minutes. If any dye appears in the toilet bowl, water is leaking from the tank.

The Average American Family of 4 uses 255 gallons of water a day inside the home!

But only a tiny amount (less than 13 gallons) is used for cooking and drinking. Here are some other ways that families use water. The amount used depends on how long the water is turned on, and whether the family uses water-saving appliances, shower heads, toilet tanks and faucets.

SHOWER: 5-10 gallons a minute
BATHROOM SINK: 5-10 gallons a minute
TOILET:    3-7 gallons a flush
DISHWASHER:    5-25 gallons a load
KITCHEN SINK: 4-5 gallons a minute
WASHING MACHINE:    35 gallons a load
