Residential accounts are billed bi-monthly. Commercial accounts are billed monthly.
All water accounts are charged a minimum amount called a "base Rate." The base rate, depending on meter size, is charged to pay the fixed costs incurred in providing water service, including supply, facility maintenance, treatment and distribution. This charge appears on every bill and does not change during the year. In addition to the base rate, charges will vary depending on the amount of water used.

Your tap water comes from local groundwater wells that supply our service area.
Your water is tested weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annually to ensure that it meets required quality levels, at the source and in the distribution system. State and federal laws also mandate that tests for some substances be made less frequently because their levels do not change. Specially-trained technicians in state-certified laboratories conduct all water quality tests.
Agencies are required to produce an Annual Water Quality Report for their customers. The reports are mailed every year in early summer. Copies are also available at City Hall.
If you are having problems with your water service, check with your neighbors to see if they have similar problems. If the problem is concentrated at your home, contact a plumber at your discretion and cost. If the problem is neighborhood-wide, contact the Water Division at 562-801-4316.
