How to calculate your water bill for a single unit using the formula listed above:

Single unit billed for usage of 27,000 gallons:

$217.56     (base charge 25,001 to 49,000 gallons / Quarter)

$   14.96    (2,000 gals. @ $7.48 / thousand gals.)

$ 232.52    Total bill

How to calculate your water bill for multiple units using the formula listed above:

32 unit building billed for usage of 251,000 gallons:

251,000 gals. / 32 units = 7,843.75 gals. per unit

7,843.75 gals. used – 3,000 = 4,843.75

4,843.75 gals. / 1000 x $8.37 = $40.54

$38.49 (minimum charge up to 3,000 gals.) + $40.54 = $79.03

$79.03 x 32 units = TOTAL $2,528.96

Meter Testing $100.00
Frozen / Burst Meter $145.00 + $75.00 for service call = $220.00

 

National Standard Usage is 22,500 / quarter for a family of 4 (247 gals per day)
