If you have a pool, your water bill might not reflect it. But change could come.
"The Trumbull Water Pollution Control Authority is in the process of changing sewer usage billing from charges based on averaging to charges for actual consumption," according to a posting on the town website.
"Currently charges are based on actual consumption for the two winter quarters and then an average of those winter quarters are used for the two summer quarters. Under those guidelines no summer consumption was used for billings. With the elimination of the averaging method, all four quarters will be based on actual consumption," it states.
Residents who receive sewer usage bills will be billed for actual consumption and residents with irrigation systems or swimming pools will be charged for water used for their irrigation systems and pools, according to the WPCA.
An Oct. 13, 2011 hearing at was sparsely attended and opinions were mixed on the proposal. Many said another hearing was needed at that time.
A second public informational meeting is scheduled for Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at . A representative from Aquarion Water Company will be present to answer and addresses any questions about having a separate meter installed for irrigation systems.
Another hearing will be scheduled for Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers and will place prior to the start of the WPCA’s regularly scheduled meeting.
