Water Conservation Surcharge Begins in May
Customer water use in May through August will be subject to the District's Conservation Surcharge. Residential customers who use more than 10,000 gallons of water in any of those months will be charged an additional 50% on the applicable rate tier, for any water use in excess of 10,000 gallons. The monthly average use for all EAWSD residential customers during the months of May through August is about 6,000 gallons per month. Customers who use less than 10,000 gallons per month during summer months will not be affected by the Conservation Surcharge.
Additional tips to help you conserve water during this critical period:
(1) Avoid weekend watering, instead, try to limit your watering days to 2 weekdays, preferably before 9 a.m. and after 6 p.m., when there is less chance of evaporation. (2) Do not water on windy days.
