Every person who operates a public water supply system must pay a water conservation fee. The fee equals three cents ($0.03) per thousand gallons of water produced. It also applies to water that a public water supply system acquires from a person who is not a public water supply system and who has not reported and paid the fee on that water.
The water conservation fee is due on or before the 25th day of the month following the month in which the water was produced. We deposit the revenue from this fee in the Water Conservation Fund for the administration of a public water supply program.
