Water Rate Information
The City of Toledo Municipal Code establishes and regulates the City's water system and requires that all rates and charges to be paid by users be fixed by resolution of the City Council.
The City collects a facilities charge, service charge and water use charge from all water users. The facilities charge is $22.00 per unit with one unit equaling one 5/8-inch meter equivalent. The charge is increased by the following meter equivalent factor for any meter larger than the 5/8-inch minimum size:
|Capacity Factors||Meter Size Equivalent|
|1 1/4 inches||4.1|
|1 1/2 inches||5.9|
The service charge is $5.00 per meter. The water use charge is $4.25 for each 1,000 gallons of water used.
Water Meters & Valves
City water meters and valves may only be operated by City Public Works. Unauthorized turn-on or turn-off of water meters or valves may result in a service charge, plus charges for any damage to City equipment.
Sewer Rate Information
Each residential or commercial customer's sewer charge is a flat rate of $11.05 per month plus $14.65 per one thousand gallons of treated water based on the average amount of water that customer used during the months of January through April. Every May the utility department refigures each customer's average usage.
