Looking to save money on your water/sewer bill?

The City of Raymore offers two different billing methods. Volume Method and Winter Average

Sewer billing is based upon water usage. As a general rule, cities assume that every gallon of water that is used goes down the drain into the sewer. It is also recognized, however, that some uses of water e.g. washing cars or watering grass, do not go down the drain, and it is not appropriate for sewer to be charged for these uses. Accordingly, cities typically bill sewer according to the amount of water used in the winter months, when almost all water usage does go down the sewer. In the City of Raymore, we call this the Winter Average method

Citywide, the average amount of water used per household during the months of December, January, and February (billed in January, February and March, respectively) is 5,300 gallons. New water/sewer customers who choose the Winter Average method are billed for 5,300 gallons of sewer, and for the actual amount of water they use according to their meter. After such customers have been through a winter, we calculate their particular winter average, and base sewer billing on that.

The City of Raymore also offers sewer billing based upon the Volume Method. Customers who choose this option pay for the same number of gallons of sewer as they actually use in water, no matter what month it is. For some customers, particularly low water users, this may be a cheaper alternative to the Winter Average method.
