Utility Rates
The City of Parsons provides water, sewer, storm water, and trash services for residences within the city limits. No deposit is required for a new utility account, however there is a connect fee of $10.

Water
Water is billed based upon two rates: a minimum charge of $18.05 for 1,500 gallons or less, and a unit charge of $5.90 for 750 gallons for all usage over the minimum. Rates for residences outside the city limits are double. (per ordinance #6354 01/04/16)

Sewer (Wastewater)
Inside the City Limits
The monthly minimum usage rate is $15.00 for 0 - 1,500 gallons and $15.50 for more than 1,500 gallons. All water over the monthly minimum is $4.90 per 750 gallons. The first year at a new residence, or for all commercial customers, charges are based on each month's water usage.

For residential customers, in December, the average consumption for October and November are calculated and used as the basis of water consumption for the following year's calculation of the sewer charge. This basis for residential usage is recalculated every year based upon the usage in October and November and takes effect on each January's billing.

The monthly minimum usage rate is $30.00 for 0 - 1,500 gallons and $31.00 for more than 1,500 gallons. All water over the monthly minimum is $9.80 per 750 gallons.
