Water & Sewer Rates

Fee Structure

Base Fee & Consumption Fee

Residential water bills have a base fee of $16.75 per account. The base fee covers fixed costs of infrastructure. The consumption fee is based on the winter quarter (or less) water use. Typically during the winter months, all water used goes into the sewer system. The consumption portion of the charge is directed to the Metropolitan Council which is responsible for treating waste water.
