NOTES:
1.
Commercial, institutional, and industrial variable charge: Gallons in excess of 7,000 are charged at the rate of $1.40 per 1,000 gallons as measured by taking 80% of the monthly water usage as determined from water records. Customer usage is measured monthly or estimated where water service data is not available.
2.
Residential variable charge (RVC): Only residential customers within the Santa Teresa - Border Area will be charged the RVC due to the debt burden required for the construction of the water and wastewater systems serving that area. There will be no variable charges for residential customers in all other service areas, unless the County determines that a variable charge is necessary for the financial viability of the utility. In the event that the County determines that a variable charge is required, the first 7,000 gallons is included in the fixed monthly charge as measured by the winter months' average from water use records (December, January and February). All gallons over 7,000 will be charged at the rate of $1.40 per 1,000 gallons.
3.
Monthly charges for new customers or customers for which water data is not available will be determined based on similar customers of the same classification. If and when water data is available, the monthly charge shall be adjusted.
