Utility Bill Winter Averaging

Each year the City calculates a typical month's sewer (wastewater) volume discharge by averaging water consumption over the winter months for each household. Your water meter measures your monthly water use, but there is no meter on your sewer (wastewater) discharge line. A water consumption average is taken based on the three months with the highest usage during November, December, January, and February. The average is used as your monthly sewer discharge volume for billing throughout the remainder of the year. 

During the winter months, residential customers typically use the least amount of water, with almost all water usage going directly into the sewer system. The metered water usage is a good indicator of sewer volume. In the summer months, there is significantly more water usage that does not go into the sewer system, such as water used for watering lawns, filling swimming pools, and washing cars. 
Typically, this results in savings for residents during the summer months.

If you have any questions, please contact Utility Billing at 713-662-8253 or


Turkey Frying Tips from the Bellaire Fire Department

Fried turkeys are delicious! When it comes to deep frying turkey, you want to take every precaution to keep your family and your home safe.  Before you set up your turkey fryer this Thanksgiving, remember these safety tips.

Stay at least 10 feet from the house
Keep children and pets away and never leave it unattended

Place the fryer on a flat, level surface
Make sure your turkey is completely thawed and dry (extra water will cause the oil to bubble and spill over)
Monitor the oil temperature (use caution when touching the turkey fryer)
Have a fire extinguisher ready at all times (multipurpose, dry-powder)
