The water rate is based on the cost of water from the City of Chicago and the cost of storage and pumping of water to consumers. Residential billing is on a bi-monthly basis and apartments, commercial or industrial buildings on a monthly basis. A penalty of 10 percent applies to any unpaid balance.
