Why are wastewater services always the same amount each month?

Here in Cottonwood, wastewater (sanitary sewer) services costs are calculated once a year in March. The wastewater charges are calculated using a monthly average of your treated water usage during the months of November, December, January, and February. We use this time of year because it is when the treated water usage is most constant since there is normally no outside use of water. That calculated average is then used each month as the basis for determining and distributing of wastewater expenses.
