SIX-MONTH SAVINGS PROGRAM
ReWa's Six-Month Savings Program is a cost-saving program in which customers are automatically enrolled. During the warmer months, there is an increase in outside water use (i.e. irrigation, swimming pools, etc.). Outside water use doesn't enter the sewer system requiring treatment, so ReWa offers customers a way to reduce wastewater treatment charges from April through September.
How does the Six-Month Savings Program work?
ReWa uses the average number of gallons each customer uses during the winter months to establish the customer's typical use. This number is then set as the maximum amount the customer will be charged during the summer months.
What if I use less than my maximum amount?
If customers use less than their established maximum, they will only be charged for actual use.
Do I need to sign up for the Six-Month Savings Program?
ReWa AUTOMATICALLY includes all residential accounts in the program. It is not necessary to sign up.
Which customers are eligible for the Six-Month Savings Program?
Only residential customers are eligible to participate. Commercial accounts receive a 5% reduction in volume charges since they generally use the same amount of water throughout the year, and are not eligible for the Six-Month Savings Program.
How does the program help me save?
The best way to save money on your wastewater treatment bill is to ONLY use water for filling swimming pools, irrigation and other outside purposes during our designated Six-Month Savings period of April through September.
When does the Six-Month Savings Program take effect?
The program will be in effect beginning with the customer's meter read date in April and ending with the customer's meter read date in October.
Note: Residential customers who use large quantities of outside water should consider installing a second water meter. Water passing through this second meter will not be charged for wastewater treatment.
