Water Budget Adjustment Form

The Water Budget Program is designed to serve as a tool to help customers know how much water they need compared to how much they are using and to use water efficiently so water supplies can be properly managed.  Each single family residential customer has a water budget for each month of the year, for example, because plants use more water in August than they do in February.   Each single family customer’s monthly water budget includes 10 units of Health and Safety water plus budgets for irrigation, pools and livestock.   Multi-family, commercial and industrial customers have not been assigned water budgets.

To request adjustments to you water budget fill out and return the Water Budget Adjustment Form above.

If your water usage exceeds your monthly water budget there will be a financial penalty.  The penalty for usage up to 25% over budget will be $0.50 per unit. Usage greater than 25% over budget will have a penalty of $1.00 per unit. If you are under budget you cannot roll over the water savings to future months.
