‘Tis the season to water wisely • Wastewater Averaging Dates

Water Drop - ColorWells Branch residents can save money year-round by conserving water during the winter wastewater averaging period beginning November 13, 2013 and ending February 13, 2014.

There are no meters on customers’ wastewater lines.  To determine wastewater usage, a customer’s water usage is reviewed over three consecutive, low demand winter months when lawn watering and irrigation are less frequent. The customer’s wastewater charge for future billings will be based on the new wastewater average or actual monthly water usage, whichever is lowest.  The usage during this time frame determines the wastewater charge each month from April 2014 to March of 2015.  Now is the time to make sure that there are no leaking faucets or running toilets!!!

Customers who pay their water bill to Wells Branch Municipal Utility District (MUD) may contact Margret Wingrove of Crossroads Utilities at 512-246-5908 or mwingrove@crossroadsus.com with any questions.  Out of District customers who buy their water directly from the City of Austin, should call 512-494-9400 or check http://austintexas.gov/department/wastewater-averaging for more information.
