Do I have to pay each month even if there is no usage?
Yes. This is called a base fee and is similar to an HOA fee in that it helps cover the common costs, such as maintaining service lines throughout the utility system. These include lines leading to each property. Base fees cover the fixed costs of the utility such as line maintenance, plant operations, acquisition, capital improvements and debt service. These costs remain regardless of whether or not usage occurs.
