Serving Our Customers
We're working for you!

As our customer, you rely on us for safe and effective sewer service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our goal is to accomplish our mission to protect public health and the environment by efficiently and effectively collecting sewage for our community, while maintaining our vision of setting the bar for essential sewage collection services.

The resources in this section are designed to help our customers get the answers they need. If you’re not finding the information you’re looking for, please contact us.

Overview

Report a Sewer Problem

If you encounter sewer problems, call SASD immediately:
(916) 875-6730

As an SASD customer, you pay a monthly utility rate for sewer service. Let us help when you have a sewer problem. We will check our portion of the sewer line at no charge to you.

Our maintenance staff will inspect the problem, usually within two hours. Learn more about our service commitment.

Overview

Monthly Sewer Rates

SASD provides sewage collection service to 1.2 million people throughout the Sacramento region. Our customers pay a sewer charge that is included in the consolidated utility bill sent every other month to customers by the County of Sacramento. Since the bill is only sent every other month, each bill reflects two monthly service charges.

Overview

Service Levels

How do we measure up?

We keep our finger on the pulse of how well we are serving our customers, meeting their expectations, and fulfilling our mission.

In talking with our customers and stakeholders, we have identified seven core service levels that are particularly important to—and clearly affect—our customers. Simply put, these levels measure the aspects of our service that customers care about most.

Overview

Sewer Improvement Projects

SASD implements necessary infrastructure improvements to ensure the safe and reliable performance of the sewer system. This section provides information about current projects that may affect our customers.

Overview

Customer vs. SASD Responsibility

It’s important to understand which part of the sewer system is a customer’s responsibility and which part is our responsibility.

Overview

Upper Lateral Loan Program
A low-interest loan from SASD makes fixing your sewer’s upper lateral more affordable.

As a property owner, you are responsible for the private sewer pipe serving your property. This “upper lateral” connects your home to a “lower lateral” owned by SASD.
