Rates and Fees

RATES AND FEES

Monthly charges to HCWA customers for water and sewer services generally consist of: (1) a monthly base charge, calculated according to the size of a customer's standard residential or commercial water meter; plus, (2) a volume charge applied to the monthly water consumption. The water and sewer rates for all residential and business customers within the HCWA system are uniform, with charges to customers outside of Henry County multiplied by a factor of 1.5.

Connection fees, varying according to the water meter size of the residential or commercial account, are charged to those establishing a new connection (where no connection currently exists) to either the water or wastewater system.

Note: our water and sewer rates increase for household consumption that exceeds 6,000 gallons per month, with yet another volumetric charge applicable for consumption that exceeds 10,000 gallons. In part, these tiered rates offer financial incentives for water conservation. However, regardless of your monthly total consumption, we encourage all of our customers to check for household leaks periodically and to use water wisely, indoors and outdoors, at all times.
