The City of Ames Water & Pollution Control Department annually surveys Iowa water and sewer utilities with a US Census Bureau reported population of 10,000 or more.  With the information from the surveys, a report is created with a representation of what customers of water/sewer utilities surveyed may actually pay.  The report includes all that would be included in a monthly billing cycle, assuming the customer had used their water and sewer.  The City of Ames has been generating this report for over 15 years.
