Monthly Service Charge

The monthly service charge commercial, industrial, public authority and non-agricultural landscape irrigation is based upon the meter size and ranges from $10.30 for a 5/8" by 3/4" Disc meter, up to $2,935.50 for a 16", 18", 20" propeller meter or 10" Omni F2 meter.

Pumping Surcharge

A surcharge will be added to the commodity rate of those users who reside at higher elevations and cause the District to incur additional pumping costs to supply their water. The surcharge is based upon prevailing energy costs and varies depending upon the elevation of the area served. If you are in an area affected by a pumping surcharge it will be itemized on your monthly bill.

Commercial/Industrial Water Allocations - Good to Know

 

  • IRWD’s rate structure is site specific, taking into consideration production needs, number of employees, water use efficiency practices and irrigation needs.
  • Many commercial businesses have separate water meters for indoor use and outdoor landscaping – in these cases, the budgets are handled separately.
  • Commercial, Industrial and Institutional water budgets are referred to as a Base Index.
  • The Base Index is determined from actual historical water usage for each individual customer.
  • The monthly water bill is calculated by comparing actual usage with the base index.
  • When a business grows, adds more employees, increases manufacturing output or serves more customers, customers may request a base index evaluation for possible adjustment of the base index.
