How is winter averaging calculated?

Consumption information is calculated during the two winter billing periods to arrive at the winter average. For example, if your water use for December/January bill was 20 ccfs (1 ccf =100 cubic feet) and your February/March bill was 10 ccfs your total for the two periods would be 30 ccfs. The winter use period is two billing cycles so you would divide the use for the two periods or 30 ccfs by two and your winter consumption average would 15 ccfs. The figure of 15 ccfs would be your maximum sewer charges per two-month billing cycle for the upcoming year.
