Regional San owns and operates the regional wastewater conveyance
system and the Sacramento Regional Wastewater Treatment
Plant located near Elk Grove, California. We serve a
population of about 1.4 million in the region.
Regional San protects public health and the
environment by conveying, treating, and recovering resources from
wastewater responsibly and cost-effectively.
Regional San is overseen by a Board of Directors consisting of
the five Sacramento County Supervisors, five city councilmembers
from the City of Sacramento, two councilmembers from the City of
Elk Grove, and single representatives from Yolo County and the
cities of Citrus Heights, Folsom, Rancho Cordova and West
Regional San customers pay a monthly rate for wastewater
conveyance and treatment services. Instead of receiving a
separate bill, our monthly charge appears on customers’ sewer
collection utility bill.
Regional San has a rate and fee category for developments with 21 or more units that are restricted to residents aged 55 years and older. This applies to single-family, multi-family, condos, apartments, and mobile home developments that meet the age restrictions and the required minimum number of age-restricted units. The age-restricted monthly rate is 60 percent of the regular single-family monthly rate. The new rate category became effective July 1, 2016.
In order to buy into Regional San’s wastewater conveyance and
treatment system, builders, developers, and industries pay impact
fees to connect. The amount of fees required depends on a number
of factors, including location of parcel, use of parcel, and
characteristics of wastewater being discharged. In
addition, there are various programs or options available that
can affect when and how payments are made for fees. See the
Regional San Consolidated Ordinance for
Regional San offers eligible low-income customers a savings of
$90 to $150 per year on the conveyance and treatment portion of
their sewer bill, depending on the type of dwelling.
To qualify for the rebate, your name must appear on the sewer
bill, you must meet certain income criteria, and you must live at
the address for which the rebate is being requested. Only one
rebate per customer.
When septic systems fail, it can hurt both the environment and a homeowner’s pocketbook. Repairs and cleanup are never pleasant. While connecting to the public sewer system can be costly, Regional San can help.
There are no more tours available for 2019; please
