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. The annual billing cycle starts in April and billing is divided into quarters as a convenience to the customers.

  • The 2018 and 2019 Annual Sanitary Sewer Rate is $16.60 per thousand gallons of water used from November 2017 through February 2018.

  • The 2018 and 2019 Residential Annual Minimum is $229.00 and billed at $57.25 per quarter.

  • The 2018 and 2019 Commercial Annual Minimum is $397.00 and billed at $99.25 per quarter.
