Winter Quarter Averaging

WINTER QUARTER AVERAGING

Every March, the Town of Westlake calculates each resident’s sewer volume utilizing the Winter Quarter Average rate method. This is determined by averaging the usage of water in December, January, and February of each calendar year - typically the lowest 3 months of usage in the year. This average then sets the billing volume of sewer usage for the following 12 months.

By practicing water conservation techniques, residents can reduce their wastewater bill by monitoring water usage during the winter months and repairing any leaks in their system.

You can take a hands-on approach by monitoring your water usage closely by using the EyeOnWater program app. This can help you analyze your peak usage times, quantities, and quickly identify a leak.
