How to calculate your water bill for a single unit using the formula listed above:


Single unit billed for usage of 27,000 gallons:


$198.00 (minimum charge up to 25,000 gals.)

$  13.50 (2,000 gals. @ $6.75/thousand gals.)

$211.50  Total bill


How to calculate your water bill for multiple units using the formula listed above:


32 unit building billed for usage of 251,000 gallons:


251,000 gals. / 32 units = 7,843.75 gals. per unit

7,843.75 gals. used - 3,000 = 4,843.75

4,843.75 x $7.55 = $36.57

$35.00 (minimum charge up to 3,000 gals.) + $36.57 = $71.57

$71.57 x 32 units = TOTAL $2,290.24
