Commercial Water Rates

Rates for Tampa Customers are Tiered to Encourage Conservation

Your water is measure in cubic feet and billed monthly in ccf units. Each ccf unit is equal to 100 cubic feet, which is the same as 748 gallons. Tampa has separate rates for commercial accounts, based on customer classification. Customer classifications are determined by land use and/or peak flow rates for commercial accounts. Each non-residential classification includes a monthly threshold value, which is expressed as a ccf value based on the average monthly water use through Tampa's water service area for each customer class. Tier rates are in place for service locations inside and outside Tampa city limits.
