Billing and Payment

Sewer Billing Information

Wastewater flows through the District's public sanitary sewer lines to  Metro Water Recovery (formerly Metro Wastewater Reclamation District)  for treatment. Customers are billed sewage treatment fees annually by the District to defray the expenses of sewage treatment charges paid to Metro Water Recovery, operations and maintenance of the system and the repair and replacement of aging infrastructure. Sewer billing is determined by a 4-month total water usage between November and February based on Denver Water meter readings. Water usage is determined each year just prior to the start of the annual billing cycle. The annual billing cycle starts in April and billing is divided into quarters as a convenience to the customers.

  • The 2021 and 2022 Annual Sanitary Sewer Rate is $16.60 per thousand gallons of water used.

  • The 2021 and 2022 Residential Annual Minimum is $229.00 and billed at $57.25 per quarter.

  • The 2021and 2022 Commercial Annual Minimum is $397.00 and billed at $99.25 per quarter.

For sewer billing questions call 303-986-3442.  Payments over the phone are NOT available.

Water Billing Information

While the District owns and maintains the public water distribution system, water services are provided by Denver Water under a water service agreement which includes the reading of meters and billing based upon water consumption. For water billing information, contact Denver Water at (303) 893-2444. Denver Water also collects $6.00 per month per Single Family Residential Equivalent (SFRE) on behalf of the District which is used for the operations, maintenance, repair and replacement of the water distribution system located within the District boundaries.
