Equal Payment Plan

Equal Payment Plan

Take control of your finances with Equal Payment. The Equal Payment Plan (EPP) takes the guesswork out of budgeting as it calculates your monthly payment using your average water usage for the current year. This way, you will know in advance what your bill will be each month.


  •  Customers pay the same amount every month
  •  No more high bills during the summer months
  •  It’s free to participate, but customers should continue to keep an eye on usage and conserve when possible


  •  This payment option is available exclusively to residential customers.
  •  This payment option is available to customers who have received the City’s water service for twelve consecutive months at the same service address.
  •  This payment option is available to customers with satisfactory credit and is not available to those customers who have missed payments or have been shut off in the last twelve months (an account not in good standing)
    •  See the City’s EPP policy

What do the bills show?

  •  Actual meter readings for the month
  •  Actual charges for the amount of water services used
    •  The Equal Payment amount due
