How can I reduce my monthly bill?

  1. Review your water habits.  The average person uses an estimated 53 gallons of water per day or 1,600 gallons per month.
  2. Consider installing water efficient toilet, dishwasher, washing machine, shower head etc.
  3. Monitor your property for leaks and fix them quickly.  Leaking toilets and dripping faucets are big water wasters.
  4. Pay your bill on time.  Delinquent bills incur a 10% penalty.
