Residential Sewer Rates

Residential Rates - City of Boise (effective October 1, 2019)

Existing Customers

The sewer usage charge is based on winter water use (October - April). Water used during the winter is the best indicator of sewer usage because no outside watering takes place during the winter months. Water use data is provided by Suez (United Water), which meters water use to most Boise City customers. Usage is calculated in hundreds of cubic feet (CCF).

Example of fee calculation based on 5.93ccf winter water use:

2017-2018 Winter Water Use (CCF) (a)5.93
Rate per CCF (b)$4.44
a (use) X b (rate) =$26.32
Add Monthly Base Fee$7.79
Total Monthly Fee$34.11

New Customers

Winter water use is estimated based on the number of occupants at the service location. Usage is pro-rated to the day so CCF under the usage column of your bill will vary each bill depending on the number of days in the billing cycle.
