Current Service Rates

Monthly Minimum:
Plus Usage:
$10 per 1,000 Gallons

Upper Souris water meters are read monthly by the customer, who then submits the reading along with each month's payment for calculation of next month's bill.

To keep your account current, please keep your readings accurate and up-to-date to avoid any unpleasant "sticker shock" over a big bill later on. 

Keep in mind that as of January 2021 the Board of Directors updated policy regarding late payments and late readings. There is now an additional $50 per month penalty for accounts that are late or do not submit a monthly reading. If you are a seasonal user, simply write "No Usage" or "Seasonal" on your billing stub when you mail in your payment. If you pay by credit card through the website, enter last season's final reading. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to call the office. 

Average Billing Examples

The District's monthly system average is 4,360 gallons per month. That means the average montly water bill would be $35 (monthly O&M) plus $43.60 (4,360 / 1000 x 10) equals $78.60.
