Budget & Financial Overview

In order for SacSewer 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 SacSewer’s operating and capital needs.


Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

What is the Sacramento Area Sewer District?

The Sacramento Area Sewer District (SacSewer) 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 EchoWater Resource Recovery Facility near Elk Grove.
