COST FOR WASTEWATER TREATMENT AND RECLAIMED WATER
It appears that the monthly basic cost for wastewater treatment for a residential home will be $48.73 if you have a 5/8 or 3/4 inch water line.
The monthly wastewater flow charge will be calculated per thousand gallon for wastewater flow, based on metered water consumption, billed in 100 gallon increments. For a single family residential home the cost will be $7.60 per thousand gallon billed up to a maximum 12,000 gallons of metered water consumption per month.
For a residential property using a monthly average of 5,000 gallons of metered water, the monthly cost would be a $48.73 base cost plus 5 times $7.60 ptg for a total of $86.72
