Ever heard of WQA? It’s a water term that means Winter Quarter Average. Since wastewater is not metered, your monthly sewer fee is determined by averaging the amount of water that is used at your home during December, January, and February, aka the Winter Quarter Average.
The winter months provide a better picture of indoor water and sewer use because it’s the time of year when outdoor water use is lowest. Your new sewer average is calculated each March based on your WQA and applied to your monthly bill beginning in April.
Making seasonal adjustments to your irrigation system and saving water during the winter months can help you save money all year long! If you have questions about your WQA, please contact the Water Office at 817-427-6200 or by email at email@example.com.
