It's the first bill of the year, why did my sewer charge go up?
For the first billing each year, the sewer charge is reset based on your water use in the first quarter. This is the maximum you will be charged for sewer during any quarter that year. If you use less water during a quarter, the sewer charge will go down based on your water use for that bill. In the summer, when water use is usually higher, the sewer maximum has already been set so you won't be paying sanitary sewer charges for your outside water use.
