Contra Costa Sewer Fees Set to Rise
The Central Contra Costa Sanitary District is scheduled to increase its sewer capacity fees between 2.6 percent and 3.2 percent starting July 1, 2020. The change is based on the district’s annual update of its changes to the value of the district’s assets and number of customers. During the public hearing set for June 4, 2020, the district’s elected board will consider the staff recommended ordinance to establish the following proposed capacity fees: The Gravity Service fee increases 3.2 percent or $214 per residential unit equivalent from $6,590 to $6,803, and the Pumping Service fee rises 2.6 percent, or $213 per residential equivalent unit from $8,175 to $8.388.
