Your Home – Residential Pricing
three-tiered water tariff system is in place for your home, so if you choose to use more water on your lawns, gardens or in your home you will automatically receive a higher bill for the additional water that is used. This is the user pays system at work.

Higher consumptions during the hotter months of the year may mean residential customers now start to fall within a higher step of charging. Now, more then ever, your consumption will play a vital role in your quarterly account calculation.
