About Block Sewer Rates

While the majority of the sewer rate applies to fixed costs that are required to maintain EMWD’s extensive sewer collection and treatment system as a whole, a flat rate structure does not consider how much each household contributes to the system. For example, smaller households generally contribute less to the sewer system than larger households.
