Wastewater Excessive Use Coming 2016

November 12, 2015

A new wastewater excessive use charge approved in 2014 will become effective January 2016. 

 In January 2016 when wastewater excessive use becomes effective, customers who currently pay excessive use charges for water consumption will also pay excessive use charges for wastewater.

 Prepare  ahead of time. Often times customers who utilize irrigation systems find themselves paying excessive use charges.  For most, that is because their irrigation system is connected to the residential water meter.  All consumption recorded through a residential water meter is charged for water consumption  and wastewater consumption.  This is because with only one meter there is no way to calculate the water that enters the wastewater system vs. the water that does not.

Save by purchasing an irrigation meter.  Water recorded through an irrigation meter is not charged for wastewater consumption. Your Mount Pleasant Waterworks Commissioners have made purchasing an irrigation meter more affordable. There are no impact fees on 5/8 and 3/4 inch irrigation meters for customers that already have a residential meter.
