A City of Wichita Falls Utility Bill consists of the following four services:
Water is a metered service. Meters are read monthly as close to 30 days as possible. The previous read and present read appear on the bill. One consumption usage of water is equivalent to 748 gallons, and is computed on a conservation rate schedule. All meters have a base charge, which varies by meter size. The base charge is added to the computed usage to calculate your total monthly water charge.
Sewer is a non-metered service. Residential sewer rates are based on water consumption December through March. Averages are calculated during this period when outside usage should be at a minimal. The average is multiplied by a sewer rate and the sewer base charge is added to compute your new total monthly sewer charge. Your new sewer charges will reflect each year on your April or May utility bill for the entire year. Commercial sewer is not averaged; it is computed monthly based on water usage.
Residential and commercial garbage is billed monthly plus tax. Residential service includes two pick ups per week. Commercial services will be picked up on scheduled days.
