Summer Wastewater Fees Capped Beginning in May

Typically, most of the water a household uses enters the sewer system as waste, so HU uses each customer’s water bill to calculate their sewer fees. During the summer months, residents generally use more water outdoors and this water does not enter the sewer system. HU sets a cap for the summer sewer rates at 120 percent of the average of each customer’s winter usage. From May 1 to October 31, customers are not charged a sewer fee for water used above the cap.
