The charge for sanitary sewer service (wastewater) which appears on the monthly water bill is based on the actual cost to CWW to collect and treat wastewater from your home or business. This cost is applied to 100% of the metered water consumption, with the exception of single family dwelling residential accounts, where the rate is not applied to anything greater than 15 CCF monthly. Separate lawn sprinkler meter usage is excluded from the wastewater fee, since this water is applied to the ground and does not go from the pipes in your home or business into the wastewater collection for treatment.

Monthly Service Charge (per account)
Residential and Non-residential: $5.15

Wastewater Volume Charge (per CCF)

Residential and Non-residential
1 CCF-15 CCF: $3.42
Over 15 CCF:   $2.77

Note: Single family dwelling residential sewer charge is capped at 15 CCF.
