Sewer Service Charges
On May 11, 2020, the District's Board of Directors held a public hearing and adopted Ordinance 31.40, which established sewer service charges for Fiscal Years 2021 through 2025. Prior to the public hearing, the District participated in a public workshop and mailed notice of the public hearing and informational brochure to all property owners in our service area. On May 26, 2020, the Board adopted a resolution deferring the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 fee increases to all residential customers until FY 2022. Because of the fee deferral residential customers did not have to pay the approved increase in FY 2021, which amounted to $33.20 for single-family residences and $35.26 for multiple-family residences. However, that amount will now be collected in FY 2022 along with the sewer service charge for this year. Please be advised, if you opted out of the FY 2021 residential fee deferral by paying the FY 2021 fee increase directly to the District you will only be assessed the FY 2022 adopted rates.

Due to legal constraints, USD does not currently offer a ratepayer assistance program. The USD Board of Directors has made it a top priority for staff to actively search for funding opportunities that would enable the District to provide a ratepayer assistance program.
