WASTEWATER RATES – THREE MONTH WINTER WATER AVERAGING BEGINS IN DECEMBER
Wastewater rates in Smithville are set by using a three (3) month “winter” water use average between DECEMBER and FEBRUARY. You can reduce your monthly wastewater (sewer) bill by conserving water during these months. In the event that the monthly water usage for any month is less than the computed "winter water average," the lesser of the two shall be used as the basis for calculation of the wastewater bill. Residential customers pay a $10.50 sewer base rate per month and $3.85 sewer fee per 1000 gallons of water used. Cut back on water use between December and February and let the savings begin!
