Starting in July, San Francisco customers will pay their water bills once a month instead of on the current bi-monthly schedule, a San Francisco Public Utilities Commission spokesman said.
Charges for water and sewer services will be switched to a monthly billing cycle to allow for easier budgeting and quicker leak detection, SFPUC spokesman Tyrone Jue said.
“By doing a monthly billing cycle (customers) will see if they have a leak a lot sooner,” Jue said. “Within a month you can see if there is a spike in your usage.”
The billing change was announced in the SFPUC’s newsletter this month. The announcement is going out in a paper mailing with bills and is being posted on electronic bills, he said.
