A minimum fee based on the meter size is charged. The 1st 100 c.f. of water is included in the minimum fee. All usage after the 1st 100 c.f. is billed in the following manner:

Water usage as shown on the January, February, and March billing is averaged to determine a "water use average" for both residential and business accounts. The water use average shall be a minimum of 500 c.f. Usage that falls within this average will be billed at the Base Tier rate. Any usage that exceeds the water use average by up to 1,000 c.f., will be billed at the Conservation Tier 1 rate. All residential usage that exceeds the water use average in excess of 1,000 c.f. will be billed at the Conservation Tier 2 rate. All residential usage that exceeds the water use average in excess of 1,000 c.f. during times of official "Water Warning" or "Water Emergency" periods, as defined by the City of Hays Drought Response Plan, will be billed at the Conservation Tier 2 rate for Water Warning or Water Emergency. 
 

To convert gallons to cubic feet, divide gallons by 7.48.
