Insider Tips to Lowering Your Water Bill
During the winter months (December, January and February) the City of Fate will average your water usage to calculate your yearly sewer cost. To save money, families who monitor and conserve water during this time frame can expect a lower sewer charge annually. Customers are also encouraged to check for water leaks to insure accurate water usage. The December, January and February time frame is used because these are historically the lowest water usage months.
