Notes

  1. Applicability: See Chapter 2 of Denver Water’s Operating Rules.
  2. Payment: Bills are due and payable to Denver Water upon issuance. Monthly bills are delinquent 20 days after the billing date. Late charges will be assessed per Denver Water policy.
  3. Single Family AWC: A customer’s average winter consumption (AWC) is used to determine the tier 1 threshold. The AWC is determined by averaging the customer’s monthly water consumption on bills dated January, February and March, which is a way of determining essential indoor water use. Denver Water has set the tier 1 minimum threshold at 5,000 gallons and a maximum of 15,000 gallons. For example, if the customer’s AWC is less than 5,000 gallons, tier 1 is 0 to 5,000 gallons. If the AWC is over 15,000 gallons, tier 1 is 0 to 15,000 gallons. Volume rates are applied to actual monthly usage.
  4. Nonresidential AWC: The tier 1 threshold is based on each customer’s average winter consumption (AWC). This represents demands during the system off-peak period. The AWC is determined by averaging the customer’s monthly water consumption on bills dated January, February and March. Volume rates are applied to actual monthly usage. Tier 2 is equal to 4 times the customer’s AWC. Tier 3 is for usage in excess of 4 times the AWC.
  5. Small Multifamily: For 2016, the small multifamily class (duplex through 5-plex) is now included in the nonresidential class.
