The sewer (wastewater) rate is based on a 3-month consumption period. Once a year, during the winter months of December, January and February - when outdoor irrigation is typically lower - the City re-averages your usage to calculate your sewer (wastewater) charge for the year for a residence. This is commonly referred to as "wastewater averaging".
Simply put, you can save money year 'round by turning off your irrigation system for the winter (during the months of December, January and February). Lawns are now dormant during that time period and do not need watering. Turning off your irrigation can help save you a bundle on your water bill.
Any resident can request in writing, once a year, to have their sewer re-averaged using three different consecutive months within the current year.

If there is a leak on your property, please call a professional plumber to locate and correct the problem. If the leak was under the ground, behind the wall, or under a slab, you may be eligible for a leak credit. You must submit in writing where you had the leak and copy of the plumber's invoice within 6 months of the repair date.
If you notice a leak that is not on your property, please call the Service Center at 512-401-5550.
After a year of good service, customers in good standing with no more than 1 late payment, no disconnects, and no returned items will receive a statement credit of their deposit. Otherwise, upon termination of your water service, the deposit on the account is applied to your final bill and any remaining credit will be sent back to you in the form of a check.
We accept payments by phone, online, in person and through postal mail; customers also have the option of arranging automatic payments through the Utility Billing Department or with their bank via a bill paying service. Find out more about paying your bill on our About Us page.
