Water bills are based on how much water is used. Watering the lawn or garden will increase usage, as will the addition of occupants in the home. Leaks can also lead to an increase in your water bill.
If your bill is higher than usual or you have any questions about your bill, call us at 763-494-6330 or email utility billing.
