So what does this chart mean? It tells you what your minimum amount due will be for each quarter and how much water you can use for that billing tier.

Example:
A residential customer with a 5/8" meter size will be billed $16.60 for the quarter whether the customer uses 0 gallons or 5,000 gallons.

What if the same customer exceeds the allowance and uses 10,000 gallons?
The customer will be billed for the $16.60 plus $4.27 for each 1,000 gallons over 5,000. The bill will now total $37.95

If you are unsure of your meter size, call the NTM main office and we can tell you what it is. Residential meters are generally 5/8" or 3/4". One of the unique features of our district is that if the customer pays their bill within 10 days of the billing date, they will receive a 4% discount off their bill.


SEWER CHARGE

Your sewer charge is based on 130% of your winter quarter water charge.
For example: If a customer's winter quarter water bill is $55.03, then the sewer charge will be an additional $71.54


BILLING CYCLES


  • Billing Cylces Map!






















    The bills are always dated the 15th of the month and are due the 15th of the following month. If paid within 10 days of the billing date, a 4% discount is applied. If the bill is not paid by the due date, a $15.00 late fee is assessed. If the bill still remains unpaid by the 1st of the month following the due date, a past-due notice is sent to the customer. If we haven’t received payment or heard from the customer in 10 days from the date of the past-due notice, a shut-off notice is sent and a $25.00 shut-off notice charge is assessed. If we still haven’t heard anything or received payment within 10 days from the date of the shut-off notice, we turn off the customer’s water. A $50.00 turn-on fee is then charged to turn the water back on, in addition to the amount of the original bill and the late and shut-off notice charges. An additional $100.00 fee is charged for after hours turn-ons.
