                                                                                                                 country customers
into the wastewater system. The amount of
discharge is calculated by multiplying water use (as
registered on the water meter) by a ‘discharge factor’.
The discharge factor is the assessed percentage of
water delivered to the property that is discharged
directly into the wastewater system.
Discharge = water use (kL) x discharge factor
This amount is then used to calculate sewer charges.
