AS PREVIOUSLY NOTIFIED IN YOUR 3RD QUARTER BILL, the 4th quarter 2018 (October 1st – December 31st) you will be billed based on your ACTUAL WATER USAGE provided by Aqua New Jersey for that quarter. The first quarter (January 1st – March 31st) will be billed based on your water usage for that quarter. The 2nd quarter (April 1st – June 30th) will be billed based on your average usage for the 4th & 1st quarters. EXAMPLE: If your water usage for 4th quarter was 14,000 gallons and your water usage for the 1st quarter was 16,000, then your 2nd quarter bill will be based on that average which would be 15,000 gallons. You would be billed $70 for the first 10,000 gallons and $5.25 for each 1,000 gallons above 10,000 gallons which would be 5 x $5.25 ($26.25) for a total due of $96.25 for the second quarter. The same billing will also happen for the 3rd quarter (July 1st – September 30th). Your 2nd and 3rd quarter billing will be the same amount. We are using this method to avoid the high spring and summer month water usage associated with lawn irrigation and pools.
