Why You Should Care About Sewer Capacity Charges?Mar 18, 2021
WHAT IS THE CAPACITY CHARGE?
The sewage treatment capacity charge is a charge in addition to sewer service billed to those customers who connected to the sanitary sewage system on or after February 1, 1990.
WHY DO WE HAVE A CAPACITY CHARGE?
To protect public health and the environment, King County’s wastewater treatment system must keep pace with growth in our region. That means building more pipes, pump stations, and treatment plants. The capacity charge distributes the costs for this expanding infrastructure to customers with the newest sewer connections. In other words, the capacity charge helps make sure that “growth pays for growth.”
