Why is my water/garbage bill so high this time?


Your water bill is calculated based on the current rates and usage; for more information on current rates, view the 2024 - 2028 Water Rates (PDF). Many customers experience an increase in their water usage during the warm months due to caring for their lawn/garden. Also, toilet leaks lose a lot of water and may go undetected for a long time. Contact the office by phone at 650-991-8082 or by email for free leak check tablets.


Garbage rates are based on the number of carts and the size. Did you request an extra cart pick up? Did you change from a smaller size cart to a larger size? Find out more by viewing some helpful garbage rate documents:
