How do I fill a pool using City of Livonia water? How do I calculate the cost?

Pools may be filled with a hose from the regular outdoor house tap, following guidelines about water use restrictions during hot days. There is no separate water fee or water without a sewage charge available. We do not offer hydrant usage for pool filling.


To determine the cost of filling a pool using City water, divide the number of gallons it takes to fill the pool by 750 (the number of gallons in a cubic foot, or one unit of water), then multiply that number by the current water and sewer rate (2021 rate: $5.52). 


Gallons ÷ 750 = cubic feet × $5.52 = total cost of filling pool
