Shady Hollow MUD is changing the way we bill for wastewater. Your wastewater charges moving forward will be based on the average amount of water used in the preceding months of December, January and February. This type of billing is commonly referred to as winter averaging and is common in the water utility industry. Prior to this change, Shady Hollow MUD used a flat rate billing method where all customers paid the same amount.
The new wastewater charges are as follows:
|Old Rate||0-2,000 Gallons
|Per 1,000 Gallons above 2,000 Gallons|
|Out of District||$94.77||$69.00||$9.20|
The Enclave at Shady Hollow and Shady Hollow West are out of district customers.
Estates of Shady Hollow wastewater charges will be based on Shady Hollow average winter water usage.
For customers whose winter average water use is greater than 10,000 gallons per month billing will be based on a 10,000 gallon per usage. This “cap” will remain in effect for the first year of the new billing method to give large water users an opportunity to adapt.
Examples for an in-district customer:
Your usage is 1,500 gallons, your wastewater bill will be $60.00
Your usage is 5,000 gallons’ your wastewater bill will be $84.00
Your usage is 10,000 gallons or more, your wastewater bill will be $124.00
