How to Read Your Water Bill
There are several important things to know about reading your utility bill:

1. While most residents refer to it as their water bill, it is actually a bill for water,
sewer, trash, and recycling services that are provided for residents by the
City of Savannah; and

2. You are billed for these utilities bi-monthly, or once every two months. 
So if you want to calculate your monthly costs it will be half of your bill.

The City of Savannah offers some of the cheapest, highest quality drinking water
in the Southeast.  The Floridan Aquifer and Savannah River, where we get our
 drinking water from, are our common resources that we all have a right to
 access and a responsibility to protect.  The fee for water charged by the
City of Savannah is for the service of collecting the water, treating it to be clean
 and safe to drink, and piping it to your home.  Similarly, the sewer fee covers
piping sewer from your home to the treatment plant and cleaning it enough
to be safe to put into the Savannah River.
