The water renewal (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 Veolia (Suez), which meters water use to most Boise City customers. Usage is calculated in hundreds of cubic feet (CCF). One CFF is equal to 748 gallons.
Example of fee calculation based on 5.93 CCF winter water use:
|Winter Water Use (CCF) (a)||5.93|
|Rate per CCF (b)||$5.77|
|a (use) X b (rate) =||$34.22|
|Add Monthly Base Fee||$9.24|
|Total Monthly Fee||$43.46|
