Wastewater Treatment System

Notice of Intent

Richmond intends to commence the preparation of comprehensive impact fees facilites plans and impact fee analysis for culinary water and sewer. Read the full notice here.

Sewer (Wastewater) Fee

The base rate of $52.00 per month (effective July 1st) covers a base discharge of 15,000 gallons per month (based on the amount of culinary water metered into the residence or business). Amounts over that base will be charged $1 per each additional 1000 gallons.

The base rate increases $1.00 per month at the start of each fiscal year (July 1) to offset inflation and for maintenance of the infrastructure and treatment plant.

New users of the sewer system are also required to pay an impact fee and a hook-up fee in addition to the monthly charge.

2015 Ordinances and Resolutions

Several ordinances and resolutions pertinent to wastewater and associated fees were adopted at the November 17 city council meeting.

Water & Wastewater Impact Fee Analyses

Richmond City has updated the impact and hook-up fees for culinary water and wastewater (sewer) for the time period of 2014 through 2019. As required by state law, a copy of our final water and wastewater impact fee analyses prepared by a certified authority is available for examination at the Richmond City office (90 S 100 W). A digital copy may be viewed here (you will need Acrobat Reader to view the document).

Please note that these updates will only apply to future new hook-ups to culinary water and wastewater and DO NOT AFFECT current water and wastewater connections in any manner whatsoever.
