The sewer usage charge is based on winter water use (October - April). Water used during the winter is the best indicator of sewer usage because no outside watering takes place during the winter months. Water use data is provided by Suez (United Water), which meters water use to most Boise City customers. Usage is calculated in hundreds of cubic feet (CCF).
Example of fee calculation based on 5.93ccf winter water use:
