Low-Density Multi-Family Per Unit Consumption Rates

Customers that have one water meter and pay water utilities charges for a duplex, triplex, fourplex, fiveplex, or sixplex are eligible to have their volumes divided amongst the number of units prior to having the charges applied. This can be beneficial to the customer if they have installed low-flow toilets and showers, installed aerators in faucets, and provided front loading washing machines for their tenants.

The table below outlines how the charges are applied for each type of building from 2 – 6 units. Customers will pay the fixed charges once per meter (water connection, wastewater connection, stormwater charges, and fire protection charges) plus the volumetric charges at the various volume thresholds outlined below:
