Wastewater Utility Charges

General Service Rates For Metered Water Users

Rate per 1,000 Gallons of all billable usage: $7.76
PLUS - Fixed Monthly Meter Charge: $7.95 per meter

This rate applies to Residential, Commercial, Industrial, and Indiana University accounts. Residential summer rates for billings issued during the months of June, July, August, and September shall be based upon the average metered water consumption for billings issued during the months of April and May or actual usage, whichever is less. In order to more accurately reflect the actual wastewater usage of these customers, the Utilities Service Board may, by the adoption of a resolution, change the months used to set the summer rates and the length of time the summer rates are in effect. All other users shall be charged on the basis of one hundred percent of metered water consumption subject to user proof of lower wastewater use. Industrial user rates and charges shall be based on the quantity of water used as well as any special service rates that may apply. The late payment fee for wastewater charges shall be paid only once and shall be 10% of the unpaid balance.

Non-Metered Users

Minimum charge per year, billable monthly: $773.47

At the request of the utility or user, a meter measuring either the water use of the customer or the discharge into the sanitary sewer system may be installed at the user's expense. Where such a meter has been installed or the customer's water use records are available from their water supplier at no charge, the charges will be computed based on the water usage plus monthly service charge, just as it is with a metered user, subject to the annual minimum charge.

Special Rates

Special service rates shall apply to all industrial users who generate wastewater which contains any non-conventional pollutants or strengths of BOD or SS that exceed the system average strengths of 300 ppm BOD or 300 ppm of SS as determined by CBU laboratory analysis.
