Understand Your Household Water Usage

Comprenda el Uso de Agua de Su Hogar

It is important for customers to know their household water usage patterns. Be sure to notice drastic changes to your Average Daily Consumption (ADC). How to Read My Bill

NOTE: The current Coronavirus epidemic has changed the way that we live. We are all at home – working, learning, washing, cooking and cleaning. This means an increase in our household water usage or ADC.

High bills can also be the result of longer billing cycles or problems with your household plumbing or fixtures, such as leaks - especially toilet leaks which are typically silent. Learn more.

High Bill Adjustments Regulation

Important changes were made to our policy for adjustments to high bills (effective March 5, 2018). Single-unit residential customers can request a high bill adjustment every three years, if certain criteria are met (the previous policy was once every seven years). This change represents a $2 million investment by WSSC Water toward improving service to our customers.  Read more.
