Utility Rates

Water & Sewer Rates
Gallatin Public Utilities strives to provide high quality water, sewer, and natural gas services at the lowest possible cost to our customers and rate payers. The utility rates must cover the day to day expenses required to operate the water, sewer, and natural gas systems; as well as funding the ongoing maintenance and capital improvement projects that enable us to comply with federal and state requirements. These requirements are designed to protect the public heath, while at the same time protecting the environment and ensuring a reliable and safe system.

How is your sewer bill determined?

Sewer is a non-metered service, and there is no exact way of determining how much sewer goes down the drains and toilets of individual customers. Like most utilities we calculate your sewer bill based on metered water usage. This provides a consistent method of calculation for all customers.

Interruptible Rates

Rates for Preferred Interruptible (GXO), Interruptible (GIO), Interrutible Market Pool (GMO), and Interruptible Transportation (GTO) are subject to the terms and conditions outlined in their natural gas service contracts. These customers must meet the established criteria to be eligible for service under the above referenced rates. Contract terms conditions are available on request from the Superintendent of Public Utilities.

For the Interruptible Rate (GIO) and the Interruptible Market Pool Rate (GMO) the charges are based on the sum of Gallatin's monthly commodity weighted average unit cost of gas including pipeline commodity and transportation, plus the above.
