Billing and Payment
Sewer Billing Information
Wastewater flows through the District's public sanitary sewer lines to the Metro Wastewater Reclamation District for treatment. Customers are billed sewage treatment fees quarterly by the District to defray the expenses of sewage treatment charges paid to Metro Wastewater Reclamation District, operations and maintenance of the system and the repair and replacement of aging infrastructure. Sewer billing is determined by a 4-month total water usage between November and February based on Denver Water meter readings. Water usage is determined each year just prior to the start of the annual billing cycle. The annual billing cycle starts in April and billing is divided into quarters as a convenience to the customers.
