What are the different charges on my water bill?

WCID 114’s current water bill charges for up to 15,000 gallons monthly usage- $74.85, which is comprised of the following:

Water – $16.25
  • Base rate for up to 10,000 gallons is $10.00

Sewer – $10.00
  • Flat fee per month
North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA) – $48.60

NHCRWA is a governmental entity created by the Texas Legislature and charged with the responsibility to help reduce subsidence.  WCID 114 is required to purchase the majority of its water from NHCRWA, which currently comes from Lake Houston. While currently NHCRWA charges WCID 114 $4.05 per 1,000 gallons of usage (the rate may change each year), WCID 114 subsidizes 20% of this cost, charging its customers currently $3.24 per 1,000 gallons used.
