Monthly water billing begins Aug. 2

To help customers manage their water usage, the city of Davis will convert from bimonthly billing to monthly billing in August. The first monthly bill will be mailed Friday, Aug. 2.

The current bimonthly statements bill in advance for storm sewer, sanitary sewer, sanitation (garbage and recycling curbside pickup); include the municipal service tax and public safety charge for the upcoming two months; and bill in arrears for water service and consumption for the previous two months. These are typically mailed to customers by the first week of each billing month.

To make the transition to monthly billing, the August bill will be a combination of the new monthly bill for storm sewer, sanitary sewer, sanitation, municipal service tax and public safety charge and the previous unbilled bimonthly water charges for May and June.

The September bill will be the first bill where everything will be monthly: storm sewer, sanitary sewer, sanitation, municipal service tax, public safety charge and also water charges, both fixed fee and the consumption charges, for July. The meters are read during the first week of the month (i.e., Aug. 1-10 to capture July consumption), and it takes about two weeks to process the data to prepare for billing.

Bills will be mailed to customers by the first of each month and due by the 25th. A 10 percent penalty charge will apply to accounts if payments are not received by the 25th. Customers always have the option of depositing funds into their account in advance, if they so choose.

The city has additional information on monthly billing, including frequently asked questions at: http://administrative-services.cityofdavis.org/utility-billing-messages/utility-billing-message. Information on the city’s water production and distribution infrastructure system is at water.cityofdavis.org.
