How is my wastewater bill calculated?

The Wastewater Utility charges a base service fee of $18.97 each month to all customers connected to the Wastewater Sewer System and $8.39 per thousand gallons of water used each month. Consumption is measured and reported by the Sahuarita Water Company.

A 20 percent irrigation credit is used to adjust for water not discharged into the sewer system. These numbers may be different for businesses. If you’re interested in an alternative irrigation credit, see the Standalone Irrigation Meter Program brochure below and the program enrollment form. 

Bills sent in September will reflect water and sewer charges for August. Payment is due by the end of the month.

A $10 late fee is added each month for delinquent accounts. Interest will accrue on delinquent accounts until the balance is paid.
