The monthly utility bill you receive from the City is for several different utilities. Depending on your address, you may be billed for all or some of the following services:
Water - Base fee and Usage fee
Note* some addresses receive water service from Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District or METRO
o The Base fee is for your meter and connection to the system. Rates throughout the City vary based upon the Service Area you live in and the size of your water meter. Except for annual increases/decreases to the Base fee, this cost will stay the same from month to month. Your bills for September and October called this a “Water Connection”. We have changed this to “Water Base” per the request of several customers.
o The Usage fee is based upon how much water your meter registers for the month. It is determined by multiplying the units of water you consume (each unit = 1,000 gallons) by the usage rate for your Service Area. Peak rates are in effect from June through September.
Sewer - Base fee and Usage fee
Note* some addresses receive sewer service from Sandy Suburban, Midvalley, or Cottonwood
o The sewer charge includes a base fee for your connection to the system plus a per unit fee based upon your average winter water usage, since most of that water is used indoors and ends up in the sewer system. The measurement period used to calculate your average winter water consumption is November through March. The average is recalculated each year and adjusted in July. Once set each July, this fee will stay the same from month to month.
Garbage - Midvale provides garbage service to all of its single family residences (no commercial)
Garbage and Recycling are included in the monthly rate of $10.66.
Additional garbage cans are $7.95 per month.
Additional recycling cans are available upon request.
Storm Water - Midvale provides storm water maintenance to all of its addresses
o The monthly fee for residences is the same throughout the City ($8/month). The fee for commercial properties is based upon square footage of covered surfaces (parking lots, driveways, etc).
Street Lighting – Midvale provides street lighting maintenance for all of its addresses
o The residential rate is $3 per month
o The commercial rate is $9 per month
