** Winter Water Average - The monthly sewer rate charged by the city is based on each customer's average winter water consumption as billed in the months of December through March using the previous rate schedule. For sewer customers who are not water customers of the city, the computation of average winter water consumption is based upon the four-month period that most closely corresponds to that used for other customers. The established rate per 1,000 gallons above the minimum bill is prorated for each 100 gallons consumed.
