Why are my sewer charges higher than my water charges?
It is less expensive to operate a water system in this area than a sewer system. Ground water is readily available and requires very little treatment before it is pumped into the water system. Once the water has been used, however, it requires a multi-stage process to filter out the impurities and clean the water to the standards required by our sewer treatment plant.
