Business Sewer Service Rates

Sewer Service Charges fund the costs of the maintenance, operation, and replacement of the facilities necessary to collect, treat, and dispose of the wastewater generated from your home or business. CVSan uses the Alameda County Tax Rolls as the primary method of collection of the Sewer Service Charge on an annual basis. This line item shows up on the property owner’s property tax bill under the Special Assessments section.  CVSan has one of the lowest rates in Alameda County and lower than the average annual charge in the State of California.

CVSan’s rate structure for the sewer service charges is an annual fixed charge and is comprised of three customer classes: residential, commercial, and institutional. The rates for the sewer service charges are calculated for each customer group based on the cost to provide service, considering both the quantity of sewage discharged and other sewer characteristics affecting the cost for treatment and disposal.
