WASTEWATER TREATMENT FEES

As you might imagine, cleaning wastewater is both complex and expensive. Each day, approximately 42 million gallons of wastewater travel through a 343 mile interceptor system to eight WRRF. At these WRRF, the water is cleaned as it passes through a series of biological and chemical processes. Once the recycled water meets all state and federal environmental standards, ReWa currently returns the water to area rivers for future use.

ReWa does not receive funds from local or state taxes. All expenditures are funded through a combination of user fees, state revolving loans, and revenue debt issues.The incremental customer rate structure outlined below will help to cover ReWa’s increasing financial obligations, including expanding the system’s capacity to meet economic demand; rehabilitating and replacing aged sections of our current system; and continually making system improvements to meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations.

Our rate methodology includes a monthly base fee as well as a volume fee to recover the cost of servicing more than 127,000 customer accounts and maintaining 343 miles of trunk line.

BASE FEE

This fee covers certain fixed costs of operations including administrative and customer related costs.

VOLUME FEE

This fee covers the cost of operations and maintenance, required capital replacements and improvements, as well as debt service.
