There is a Water Conservation ordinance which prohibits the use of sprinklers between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. throughout the year. During dry spells, additional measures may be necessary to further conserve water.
Leon Valley Uses Winter Averages For Sewer Billing
Sewer bills are based on an average water use during the months of November, December, January and February. This time period is used because historically this is when the customer does little outside watering.
To keep sewer bills down, residents should minimize their water use between November 15 and February 15 of each year. The new sewer rate for the year will show up in the April billing. Questions regarding your bill should be directed to the water-billing clerk in City Hall, at (210) 684-1391 ext. 224 or Visit the Utility Page.
