Wastewater Rate Change

Effective July 1, 2013, the third scheduled annual rate increases go into effect for both sanitary sewer service and storm drainage service.  Beginning July 1, 2014, annual increases will be tied to the Consumer Price Index (CPI-U) for the Denver metro area.

Denver’s Wastewater Management Division remains committed to controlling costs.  Efforts have included unpaid “furlough” days for its employees in each of the years 2009 through 2012; selective hiring freezes; and no salary increases in 2010.

Nevertheless, Wastewater Management must maintain the quality and reliability of its underground pipes and infrastructure; plan and construct high priority projects; and support RTD’s FasTracks construction by upgrading or realigning city lines.  The rate changes are needed to fund vital improvements to Denver’s sanitary sewer and storm drainage systems.
