What do the abbreviations on my bill stand for?

The monthly “base” fee is a monthly charge that covers fixed costs of providing services that do not change with water usage. This line item includes the on-going management, administration, customer service and the cost of our operations contractor.

Water usage is billed based on actual use per thousand gallons that goes through your meter monthly. This volume is read each month from your meter.

The sewer charges are fees used to pay the third party for sewer treatment. Cottonwood does not have their own Wastewater Treatment Plant and must contract out services for that service.
