City offers information on water bill calculations and conservation tips

August and September water bills are generally the highest for our water utility customers.  These months are the hottest and customers typically water their lawns and landscapes more frequently.  The City of Mesquite uses a tiered water rate structure which charges a higher rate as more water is used.  The higher consumption amounts in the summer months may place a customer into a higher tier rate category. For more information on how the City calculates monthly water bills as well as conservation tips to help lower your bill, visit
