Water Rate Formula

Base Rate = Fixed Rate for Water Usage

Per Thousand Rate = Variable Rate; Charges for water on a “per thousand” basis

+

The Base Rate is $40.00. Here’s how we got there.

Total Debt Service to be paid from the Water Fund is $856,000.

The City of Ballinger has approximately 1800 accounts.

+

When you divide the Debt Service by Number of Accounts you get: $39.63. Rounded up you get $40.00.

The “Per Thousand” rate is $7.80. Here’s how we got there.

The Total Budget for the Water Department is $ 2,280,894.90. When you subtract the debt service of $856,000 (See Above) you get $1,434,894. (This is your costs.)  Last year, the Water Treatment Plant distributed approximately 182,500,000 gallons of water. (This is your volume).

+

What this means is it will cost the City of Ballinger $1,434,894 to produce approximately 182,500,000 gallons of water.

When you divide $1,434,894 by 182,500,000 (costs / volume), you get 0.0078. When multiplied by 1000, you get $7.80 per thousand.
