Can you give me an ERU charge example?
Properties not classified as a residential customer will be charged by the number of Equivalent Residential Units (ERUs) times a monthly charge of $5 to $10. An ERU equals 3,318 square feet of the average impervious surface area found on a single-family property. The number of ERUs for non-residential properties is determined by dividing the amount of the property's impervious surface by 3,318. Thus, a 33,180 square foot building and parking lot is assigned 10 ERUs and will pay $50 to $100 per month since it is 10 times larger than an average home.
