Outside Water Usage

Filling pool

MCUS provides a sewer average program that accommodates higher water usage during summer months related to watering, irrigation, pool filling, etc.

In accordance with City Ordinance 2013-52, "For the months of June, July, August, and September, the City shall bill the user for wastewater services using the amount equal to the average monthly wastewater bill for that user for the preceding eight months (i.e., total wastewater charges for October, November, December, January, February, March, April and May...)"sprinkler

During the four months indicated in the Ordinance (June - September), your billed sewer usage will not exceed your average monthly water usage from October - May. For example, if you use 10 units of water in June due to watering, but your October - May average is 5 units, your billed sewer in June will be 5 units.

If you have any questions or concerns about your MCUS bill at any time, contact MCUS at (217) 762-2583 or mcus@cityofmonticello.net
