What does a 5D wastewater rate mean?

The 5D wastewater rate is the default winter factor rate that is applied to accounts when a new account is set up through the local water district. All new accounts are charged a default rate until SD1 receives a 90-day reading from the water district. After the 90-day reading is received, SD1 adjusts your winter usage factor based on the meter reading provided by your local water district.
