Water, sewer, and sanitation operations in University Park are funded by user fees, which are included each month on a resident's utility bill. The fees are expressed as either a fixed rate per month, a fixed rate per unit of consumption, or a combination of each.
 

Water Rates

The minimum monthly rates for all metered water service is as follows:
 


Consumption charge: The City charges $4.74 per 1,000 gallons consumed.


Conservation surcharge:  During the months of May through October, an additional $1.76/1,000 gallons is assessed for all consumption over 30,000 gallons/month.

Drought premium:  In the event that a Stage 3 declaration of the City's drought contingency plan is made, the City Council shall have the option of enacting a special drought premium rate for consumption exceeding 30,000 gallons per month.  The rate shall represent a 50% increase from the existing conservation surcharge rate. 
 

Sewer Rates

Minimum monthly rate: Each water customer is charged a flat monthly amount of $11.00.


Consumption charge: The second piece of a sewer bill is based upon a household's average water consumption during the winter months. This three-month average is multiplied times a rate of $4.97 per 1,000 gallons.
