    Sewer Utility Rate Increase


    more ▼ less ▲

    Notice of Sewer Rate Increase

    Effective July 1, 2020, the South Salt Lake Sewer Utility rate increased. This impacts all residents north of Mill Creek. The new rate will apply to the July billing, due 8/20/2020.

    Why are rates increasing?
    The rate increase is due to a $210 million upgrade at Central Valley Water Reclamation Facility (CVWRF). This will keep CVWRF in compliance with federal EPA regulations aimed at lowering phosphorus levels in recycled wastewater.

    What is the City doing to offset cost?
    The City has secured a Hardship Grant for $2 million, along with a 0%-interest loan for the remaining $9,248,000 needed to cover our portion of the cost of this project.

    What is the new rate?
    Sewer fees have increased by $2.00 per 1,000 gallons of winter water usage. For the average household, this is an additional $8-$10 per month.

    How can I reduce my bill?
    Reduction of water usage would lower your sewer utility bill.

    This increased fee enables the City to make scheduled payments on the 0% interest loan, our portion of the CVWRF upgrades.

    Questions:
    Email utility@sslc.com or Call 801-483-6074
