Frequently Asked Questions:
Why is my sewer rate so high?|
In the Seattle area, sewer rates are complex as they include both local and regional components. Water quality standards in our region are some of the highest in the country. Sewage and wastewater is collected, transported, treated several times over, and emptied into Puget Sound at drinking water quality. Additionally, all bi-products of the sewage collection/treatment process (methane gas, reclaimed water, etc.) are harnessed and recycled for reuse and/or resale, including energy production and the like. All of this comes at a cost, and protection of our public health and environment is something that residents/voters in the Northwest take seriously. Most are willing to pay for the quality of life/environment that we enjoy in our region.
