Water Rates / Billing

Water usage at residences is metered.  Water meters are read every two months, and the Water Department uses these readings to produce and mail bills every other month.

The billing rate is a made up of two parts:

  • A $100.00 fixed fee for the first 500cf used during the two-month billing cycle.  This fee pays for maintaining the water-distribution system, including the equipment and infrastructure needed to ensure that water is available at each residence when needed.

  • A usage fee of $1.50 for each additional 100cf (or fraction thereof) consumed during the billing cycle.  This fee helps pay for other routine expenses associated with the Water Department and encourages water conservation.

  • All money paid to the Beaux Arts Water Department is kept in a separate fund and is used exclusively to support and maintain the Water Department.

Payments are due by the 25th of the billing month. You can either mail you payment to the Beaux Arts Water Department or hand-deliver your payment to the locked mailbox on the mailstand nearest the water tower.  If you are hand-delivering your payment, please place the payment coupon and your check in an envelope -- feel free to reuse the envelope that your bill arrived in -- and insert the envelope in the locked mailbox.  Customers who do not pay by the deadline will incur a late fee.

If you have questions about the Water Department or your water bill, please contact Clerk/Treasurer Sue Ann Spens
