ANNUAL THREE MONTH AVERAGE WATER USAGE
Every year the City of Warr Acres recalculates the next year’s sewer rates based on a report from the Oklahoma City Water Department listing a three month average consumption of water usage for each residential property. This means that your sewer bill from May 2015 to April 2016 could have an increase, decrease, or your rate could remain the same depending on how much water consumption you had during December 2014, January and February 2015. These new rates will be reflected on your May 2015 bill , which will be sent out around the 20th of May.

If your May 2015 bill reflects a substantial increase, it may be because you had a water leak, a toilet or faucet that continually ran during those three (3) winter months. If you have a plumber repair one of these problems during these months, then you can bring in the plumbing repair bill to Warr Acres City Hall. Our utility billing clerk can recalculate your average water usage for a lower sewer rate. But you MUST have a plumbing repair invoice indicating the problem occurred during the months stated above in order for your sewer rate to be recalculated

Sewer Rate Increase With May, 2014 Billing
The sewer charge reflected on your utility bill each month is determined by a fixed base rate and a usage rate. The usage rate is calculated based on winter average water usage for December, January, and February and reflected on your May billing. Due to increased cost of the daily operations of the Sewer Department and addition of one employee, for these reasons the City Council voted to increase the base rate fee only. This is the first base rate increase since 2006. Listed below is the rate increase chart.

RESIDENTIAL
0 to 2999 Gallons $.72
Over 2999 Gallons $2.70
COMMERCIAL
Base Fee $2.70
MULTI-DWELLING UNITS
Base Fee $3.24


The City is aware of the need to replace/repair sewer lines and has been unable to address this need on its own due to a lack of funding. Past
repairs have been accomplished with the help of matching Federal funds, however future projects will no longer qualify for this option. In order to
address this shortfall, the City Council recently approved a Line Maintenance fee increase from $1.00 to $1.50.
