Monthly water and wastewater rates consist of a Flat Service Charge based on meter size and account classification, plus a Volume Consumption Charge based on a tiered rate structure.

All charges are calculated on a daily basis and may vary slightly from month to month depending on the number of days in the billing cycle. Water meters are read Monday through Thursday. If a scheduled meter read date falls on a weekend or holiday, it is read on the next available work day. This causes the number of days of service in billing cycles to vary, but you will receive 12 monthly utility bills during the year. The service charges on your bill reflect the daily rate based on the number of days in your billing cycle for that particular month.

For a complete list of rates for all customer types, please see the Department Service Rules.

Water Rates

The City of Henderson adopted a four tier rate structure in 2003 to encourage water conservation. Customers who conserve water fall into the lower tiers and are rewarded by a lower water rate. The average Henderson single family residence consumes approximately 15,000 gallons of water per month, with volume consumption falling within the first two tiers.
