Business rates and capacity charges are determined based on type and size of a business. For a list of our business categories and descriptions, view our Monthly Rate Schedule (PDF). Annually, Monterey One Water staff will visit your business to conduct field inspections. These site visits allow for an accurate accounting of business charges. Staff will verify variables like:
Number of seats in a restaurant
Number of hotel rooms
Number of check out lines or payment stations (cash registers)
If the business type or size has changed from the original application, charges will be updated to reflect the new operations. Depending on what is identified during the inspection, this may increase or decrease your bill.
If you have modified your business operations, please contact our Customer Service Team to coordinate a field inspection of your business.
