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.
What is the Sacramento Area Sewer District?
The Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD) is a sewer utility that owns and operates thousands of miles of lower lateral and main line pipes (i.e., those sewer pipes under the streets) and is responsible for the day-to-day operations and maintenance of those pipes and related infrastructure (e.g., pump stations). Once your wastewater is collected in our system, it flows into the Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District (Regional San) interceptor system (made up of larger pipes), where it is conveyed to the Sacramento Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant near Elk Grove.
This section includes media contact information and recent press releases and coverage. Members of the press may direct inquiries about SASD to the contacts listed at right.
SASD’s team of more than 300 professionals work tirelessly to keep the sewer system running smoothly. With 4,500 miles of sewer pipes and more than 100 pump stations, SASD relies on our highly trained team of professionals to manage the day-to-day operations and maintenance of the sewer system.
As the largest sewage collection utility in the Sacramento region, the Sacramento Area Sewer District values and rewards the contributions of its 300+ employees. We are proud of our longstanding reputation as an agency committed to customer service, and we regularly seek talented professionals to help us deliver on that commitment for the 1.2 million people we serve.
It is SASD’s goal to provide the public with timely access to its public records. Learn more about our public records and how to request them:
