I would assume consumption of 0-10,000 gallons water.

Yeah, its consumption of water.
You get charged different rates based on the amount of water you use.

So the first 10MGW is one rate
Then usage above that is charged at a different rate.

This is the method the city decided to use to screw over families to have them pay more for water.

In the year MMXVIII you would think CSU would be past the use of Roman Numerals as place holders....since we are supposed to be working towards the metric system.

Yup. It's a progressive rate so the more you use, the higher cost pergallon.
A deliberate and determined effort to obstruct everything, no matter what the merits, just to re-fight the result of an election is not normal, and for the sake of future generations, we can't let it become normal.

Hi woodiewood1,

You are correct that CONS 0-10 MGW relates to consumption of water. The number at the end of that particular line on your bill is your water consumption, which may or may not be zero to 10,000 gallons.

MGW refers to thousands of gallons. The "M" is for mille, Latin prefix for thousand. Because, of course, we're all conversant in Latin, right? (For what it's worth, water utilities that bill in hundreds of cubic feet refer to that as CCF, where the first "C" is hundred).

You will want to look at the number next to the "MGW" and that is your consumption in thousands of gallons. For example, 25 MGW is 25,000 gallons of water.
