SUMMER SEWER AVERAGE
For water used during April thru September an average of the previous six month
period will be used. In general, these are the months when residential customers
use the least water and when water is issued is going into sanitary sewer system
for treatment. For new customers, charges will based on actual usage until such
time as that customer establishes an average for the October thru March periods.
This computation has been passed by the City Council as a way of alleviating very
high sewer changes during the summer when many customers water their grass
and flowers and this water is not going through the sewer system.
Customers who want to keep their winter average low will need to stop watering
at the end of September and can begin watering after their meter is read in April.
If you have any questions regarding when your meter is read, please call our
Winter Months - October through March
Summer Months - April through September
Note: If you move from one location to another, your summer sewer averaging
will not be transferred to the new location.
*Residential customers who reside in the city limits of Mountain Home
and have a sprinkler meter will not qualify for summer sewer averaging.
