All About SASD

The Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD) is a sewer utility providing service to 1.2 million people in the Sacramento region, including the unincorporated areas of Sacramento County; the cities of Citrus Heights, Rancho Cordova, and Elk Grove; as well as portions of the cities of Folsom and Sacramento. We serve residential, commercial, and industrial customers.

SASD owns and operates thousands of miles of lower lateral and main line pipes and is responsible for the day-to-day operations and maintenance of these sewer pipes. Once collected in our system, sewage flows into the Regional San interceptor system, where it is conveyed to the Sacramento Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant near Elk Grove.

Overview

SASD is overseen by a Board of Directors consisting of the five Sacramento County Supervisors and the mayors (or their designees) of the cities of Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Rancho Cordova and Sacramento. Board members and their contact information are provided below.

Overview

Budget & Financial Overview

In order for SASD to maintain quality, reliable service for you – our customer – we not only have to remain financially stable but also provide sufficient funding to operate the system and maintain reasonable sewer rates and fees. We accomplish this goal by incorporating long-term financial planning into all of our activities. Cost projections for new projects and multi-year projections of regular operating expenses are used to develop our five-year forecast of rates and fees. These projections are reviewed annually to ensure they meet SASD’s operating and capital needs.
