Current rates are as follows:
Standard 5/8"-3/4" meter service charge is $13.60
1st 10,000G of water is $8.06 per 1,000G
AFTER the 1st 10,000G of water, the cost $5.23 p/1,000G
Beginning with the July Billing, June usage, there will be a $.25 p/1,000G increase. Patoka Lake R.W.S.D. has increased their rates and we will be passing that along to you.
If you are trying to calculate for bill, here's some help:
If your usage is 4,580G, it would calculate as follows:
Service Charge $13.60
4.58 (thousand gallons in decimal form) X $8.06= $36.91
$36.91 + $13.60 = $50.51
Don't forget the sales tax: $50.51 X 7% = $3.54
So, $50.51 + $3.54 = $54.05
If you should have a leak, leave a hose on, have a toilet or other fixture leaking, you wash the house, you wash the car, fill the pool, etc. the discounted rate is automatic. Our tiered rates help with expected and unexpected higher usages.
It is ALWAYS cheaper to fill a pool through your meter than have it hauled in.
If you ever have questions about how your bill is calculated, we're glad to help!! Don't fret, just call.
