Monthly Billing

Starting on April 1st, 2017, Ken-Caryl Water and Sanitation District will begin billing customers on a monthly basis instead of a bi-monthly basis. This change will help customers track their water usage and detect possible leaks sooner, as well as help better manage household budgets. The new monthly billing system means that water meters will be read monthly, and your bill will reflect a month of water usage.

Receiving Your First Monthly Bill

The transition from bi-monthly billing can be a little confusing, and we want to make sure you understand exactly what you are being billed for. Customers will receive their last bi-monthly bill in either February or March.

If you receive your last bi-monthly bill in February, this will reflect your usage for the months of January and February of 2017. Your first monthly bill will come to you at the end of March, and will reflect your usage for just the month of March.

If you receive your last bi-monthly bill in March, this will reflect your usage for the months of February and March of 2017. Your first monthly bill will come to you at the end of April, and will reflect your usage for just the month of April.

Benefits of Monthly Billing

Helps Create a More Efficient Budget

Monthly billing allows you to align your water/sewer bill with other monthly expenses (cell phone, rent/mortgage, cable, etc.). This can help create a more efficient budgeting process each month.

A Better Look at Your Water Usage

Monthly billing provides a more timely and accurate look at your water usage. This is especially useful during the summer months, when water conservation measures are most effective.

Ability to Detect Possible Leaks Faster

With monthly billing, you will be able to notice if your water usage is different than normal. This means that you can detect potential leaks or other problems more quickly. This will help you avoid the high costs associated with leaks, and potential damage to your home.
