Allocation Cost: $

Allocation is a one time purchase that is maintained for the property that it is associated. When a customer purchases allocation, they are buying a portion of the water treatment plants' available allotment. The amount purchased depends upon the needs of the individual property during the 92 day summer season (July, August, and September). The allocation purchase is based on their summers usage because that is when the demand is the highest. When a customer exceeds their purchased allocation for their property, they will either incur penalty charges, or they have the option of purchasing more allocation to the amount they exceeded before Oct 31st of each year.

NOTE: If you have usage values from past bills for the months of July, Aug, and Sept, you can add up the total use over those months and multiply by 1000. This will give you the total gallons used for the summer quarter.
