"Water rate simple calculation tool" (the outside site)
We can estimate new water rate to become revision with "water rate simple calculation tool" from July 1, 2021.

Calculation method

Water rate measures use quantity of water by inspection of a meter every two months. Therefore, we add up rate every one month and, with use quantity of water for 2 months as 1/2, calculate water rate for two months.
[example: in diameter 20mm, two months in the case of use quantity of water 30㎥]
With use quantity of water 30㎥ for two months as 1/2, we calculate for using 15㎥ in 15㎥, the second month in the first month.

Table for calculation

(first month +2 or the moon eyes) X consumption tax = water rate
(1,858 yen +1,858 yen) X 1.1 = 4,087 yen (less than 1 yen cutting off)
※We divide into 15㎥ and 16㎥ and calculate when use quantity of water for two months is 31㎥ (we calculate equally when use quantity of water is odd number)
※Water rate adds minute with sewerage system usage fee for principle two months and is expected to pay.
