rates
Mount Werner Water bills quarterly for water and sewer service. Bills are mailed at the end of each calendar quarter and are due within 30 days.

As of January 1, 2013, residential customers will pay 28 cents for the first 75 cubic meters. Indoor water usage by most residential customers falls within that cutoff.

All water consumed after the first 75 cubic meters and up to 420 cubic meters will cost residential customers 45 cents per cubic meter. Some residential customers who irrigate their lawns heavily may slip into this second tier. After 420 cubic meters, the rate increases to 90 cents, and revenues from this tier will fund conservation programs. There are 264.2 gallons of water in a cubic meter.

Commercial customers will pay a uniform rate of 42 cents per cubic meter of water. Sewer rates vary and are as follows:
