All of these components combined contribute to the total water invoice. The only way to reduce these fixed costs is to conserve water. The District is proud to announce the opening of Well #5. This well will reduce our dependency on the Harrisville water supply by 25%. The District continues to look for alternative water sources, but these will take time to develop. We are counting on our customers to help us reduce our water requirements.
