What are volume-based water rates?

To encourage water conservation, water rates are tiered based on the volume of water used. Lakeville has three residential tiers, and the rates increase with the level of usage.

  • Tier 1:  0 - 30,000 gallons
  • Tier 2:  30,001 – 49,000 gallons
  • Tier 3:  More than 49,000 gallons
