Understanding My Water Usage

Understanding My Water Usage

The City of Hendersonville utilizes rates based on a per 1,000 gallons model of consumption. Billing statements are printed with a usage indicator referenced in Hgal units (hundreds of gallons). As a result, when attempting to calculate a bill, please multiply the usage by a factor of 100 to determine the actual amount of water consumed. For a current listing of rates and fees, please click here. A sample calculation is provided below. Please note, sewer is calculated on a different rate schedule utilizing water consumption data.

Sample Calculation:

If your billing statement shows a usage of 20, the usage calculation would be as follows:

20 Hgals x 100 = 2,000-gallons  

(2,000-gallons/1000) = usage multiplication factor = 2

Actual Bill = Base Rate + (Usage Rate x Usage Multiplication Factor)
