Ventura Water Bill Calculator

Ventura Bill Calculator
Total bi-monthly usage – the volume of water used during each two-month period – is used to calculate the volume charge. Beginning July 1, 2021, customers will be billed monthly.
Currently, winter bi-monthly usage – the average winter usage for bills received February through May of the prior year – is used to calculate the residential wastewater flow charge. New residential accounts are billed at 15 units the first year.

Effective July 1, 2021, if proposed rate changes are approved, wastewater flow charges will be billed based on actual monthly water usage.
