Wastewater averaging is a way for you to save money. Wastewater averaging takes place during the late fall / winter months and determines a cap on the volume of wastewater you will be billed for each month for the next year.

Austin City Council approved on March 4, 2021 adjustments to the Wastewater Averaging Period, as part of Austin Water’s recovery and customer assistance efforts for Austinites impacted by Winter Storm Uri. Instead of actual meter reads, historical water usage will be used to estimate wastewater bills beginning on February 14th.
