Hi, Alisa!

Thanks for asking - I agree that it's important that all residents are on the same page when it comes to how the water/sewer/trash bill is calculated. Basically, we take a common approach to apartment community water billing. Most larger communities will assess through a process known as "community billing". Using this method, the water bill is assessed by taking the overall water, sewer, and trash usage within a community and dividing up amongst each apartment home depending on 1) how many residents are in the apartment home, and 2) the size of the apartment home. So, one resident in a one bedroom apartment home would have a smaller water bill than 3 people in a 2 bedroom apartment home.

If you have any further questions, please let us know at the office - you know that my door is always open to you as well. Have a great weekend!
