Six-Month Savings Program
MetroConnects realizes that during the warmer months, there is an increase in outside water use (i.e. irrigation, swimming pools, etc.). Most outside water use does not enter the sewer system and therefore does not require wastewater treatment.
Please note, the Six-Month Savings period will end in October and will not be reflected on your November bill.
How it works:
- The program averages the number of gallons used during the winter months to establish your maximum summer consumption.
- During this summer period, MetroConnects wastewater charges will be billed based upon the lower of your winter average usage or your actual usage. To optimize your savings during the summer, closely monitor your usage from October through March.
- This program reduces wastewater collection charges associated with outdoor water use for irrigation, swimming pools, and other outdoor activities.
Please keep in mind that customers who use large volumes of outside water throughout the year should consider installing an irrigation water meter. Water passing through an irrigation meter will not be billed as wastewater. Contact your water company for information about the costs associated with installing an irrigation meter.
