Answer: The sewer usage is determined by the average quantity of water used during the months of December, January and February. That average water usage (in 1000's of gallons) is used for determining your sewer billing for the next 12 months until recalculated the following year. The reason that those three months are used is that outside water usage for things like washing cars or watering lawns or gardens is typically not taking place. This is the industry standard process in the northern tier states and ensures that customers are not billed sewer charges for water that goes on the lawn and not in the sewer system. The new sewer usage is calculated each February and will be billed starting with the March 1st billing.
Answer: There could have been something obstructing the meter or there could be meter damage.
Answer: The Board of Trustees passed a Resolution reducing the water and sewer rates by 50% for those individuals who qualify for the LEAP program through the Colorado Department of Human Services. LEAP qualification will have to be verified with the Town Clerk on an annual basis.
Question: My water usage seems to be high, what can I do?
Answer: Here are some things to look for that can be causing high water consumption: leaking toilets; Dripping faucets; long water usages; and leaking watering systems for yards. A 1/16th of an inch hole in your system that is allowing water to rush through at 60 psi water pressure will waste 74,000 gallons over the course of just three months. An easy process that you can perform to check for leaks is to turn all water systems to the off position. Watch the meter triangle located on top of the meter. If it is turning at all then you either have a leak or forgot to turn something off. To test to be sure that this process described works, have a person briefly turn on a sink faucet and you will see the triangle will go round and round.
