CWLP retail water service is available to all residents and businesses inside the Springfield city limits, as well as to certain areas outside the city, including Leland Grove and Southern View. The billing unit for water service is 100 cubic feet, which is equivalent to 748 gallons. The average residential customer uses approximately three units of water each month for each person living in the household.

CWLP has four different water rate classification schedules: three standard service categories, which are based on where the customer is located; and one fire protection line service rate. Standard water service rate schedules apply equally to both residential and business customers; the fire protection line service rate is applicable only to business properties with fire protection water lines. Rates for standard water service include a flat readiness-to-serve meter charge, based on the size of the meter, and separate charges for the volume of water consumed.

Basic information on each of CWLP's three standard water service rate schedules can be obtained by clicking the expandable blue panels below.
