Residential Water Rates

Rates for Tampa Customers are Tiered to Encourage Conservation

Your water is measured 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 single-family and apartment (multi-family) residential accounts. Separate rate schedules also are in place for accounts within the City limits and for those customers outside the City.

Minimum Monthly Charge

Your water bill is based on actual water usage or the minimum monthly charge, whichever is more. Minimum monthly charges, based on meter size are:
