Upon receiving your water bill write down the date you received it and read your meter (visit the How to Read a Water Meter page to learn more). The difference between the time the City read it and the date you received it in the mail is approximately two weeks. After reading your meter, calculate the difference. If the current reading on the bill is higher than the reading you just read, call our office at 409-643-5923.

Since the City only bills in the thousands, it's not uncommon to have the same bill during the year. You may use 3,590 gallons of water, but the City will only bill 3,000 gallons of usage. Therefore, if you use 3,999 or 3,001 gallons of water, you are only billed 3,000 gallons of usage.
