First Tier Usage Block

Effective July 1, 2017, the Tier 1 usage block is calculated by using the highest number of the following three factors multiplied by the number of days in the billing period.

  1. 88% of the adjusted tier allotment created during the shortage year's average daily winter water use of fiscal years 2007, 2008, or 2009
  2. 88% the average daily winter water use of December 2014 through March 2015
  3. Minimum of 24 HCF per month

New customers that have not established a first tier usage block are billed at the Tier 1 rate until a first tier usage block is established from the prior year's December through March consumption.
