The Sewer Service Charge (SSC) is applied to metered water use to obtain money for constructing and maintaining sewers and sewage treatment plants, and for treating sewage which is discharged into the sewer system. The officially adopted ordinances, rules, and regulations will rule in case of any conflicts. Refer to Los Angeles Municipal Code (LAMC) Section 64.41, as modified or to the actual LAMC code citing.
This fee is on your Department of Water and Power (DWP) bill, if you are currently billed for the service. The charge is based on metered water use and generates funds for constructing and maintaining wastewater facilities such as sewers and sewage treatment plants, and for treating the sewage that is discharged into the sewer system.
The current SSC rate is $4.51 per 748 gallons or one HCF (hundred cubic feet) of sewage volume.
For this fiscal year, the DWCF is 0.90 and the Rainy Season Review Period (RSRP) was from September 14, 2015 to March 22, 2016.
The low income surcharge (LIS) is 0.00609 of your SSC amount.
For commercial customers, the default percentage discharge is 93%.
