Billing Information & Rates

The District generates statements based upon the water usage reported from Illinois American Water. Most customers receive a statement every other month, usually within two weeks of when the water bill is generated. The District's ordinance requires that UCSD bill the property owner; the tenant cannot be billed. If you are not the owner of the property, please contact the Billing Department.
 

Effective in 2018:


UCSD will begin billing in 100 gallons (GL) units.  The District has historically billed in 100 cubic feet (CF).  Illinois American Water Company has converted to billing in 100 gallons and UCSD decided to make this change in order to make it easier for the customer.
 
The conversion is 100 cubic feet = 748 gallons 

The current rate is $1.86 per 100 CF.  The converted rate to 100 gallons GL is $0.2487.  The District and all of the cities and village rates will also be converted to the 100 gallon rate.


Please note that this is not a change in rates, it is a change in billing method.
