Monthly Service Charge (Minimum Monthly Bill)$7.25
All usage$6.65 per 1,000 gallons


Irrigation Rate No. 4 may be utilized by water consumers who are using water for irrigation purposes where water used does not enter the sanitary sewer system.  The use of this rate is permitted only when used in addition to another meter billed under Rate No. 1,  2 or 3, however, master metering will not be allowed.  To qualify for this rate, the consumer must gain prior approval from the City, and if approved, the consumer must install a separate water meter in an approved manner, at the consumer's expense, for the purpose of metering only the water which in no way will find its way to the sanitary sewer system.  Furthermore, the meter shall be installed so as to be convenient for meter reading. Any nonapproved water utilization under this rate which finds its way to the sanitary sewer system will immediately bring about the removal of such meter and the elimination of any further water use under Water Rate No. 4.  

The minimum bill for Rate No. 4 shall apply at all times when the meter billed under Rate No. 1 is in service.
