Why are sewer rates being raised?

Sewer rate increases are necessary for:

  • Construction projects to correct existing deficiencies and replace aging infrastructure
  • Proportional adjustments to fairly reflect wastewater flow and treatment needs of each customer class (residential, commercial, industrial, Cannery Segregation)
  • Increasing reliability of the current system
  • Upgrading the wastewater treatment system
