Some Austin Water customers will see smaller bills come January.
The utility will drop its base charge by 45 cents for most Austin households. Three of the five tiers also dropped in price.
Customers who use 2,000 gallons or less will only pay $1.05 on top of their base charge, which is down from $2.20.
But be ready to pay a lot more if you use more than 11,000 gallons of water a month. That rate almost doubled from $12.70 to $23.75.
The new rates take effect Jan. 1.
