Durham water customers will be charged differently for water usage.

The Bull City is set to begin a new tiered rate billing system. The more water you use, the higher your bill.

Raleigh is also considering a switch to tiered billing in the next year or two.

Tuesday city council approved spending about $200,000 to hire a consultant to create a business plan and model for how that rate system will work.
