Billing and Payment

Sewer Billing Information

Wastewater flows through the District's public sanitary sewer lines to  Metro Water Recovery (formerly Metro Wastewater Reclamation District)  for treatment. Customers are billed sewage treatment fees annually by the District to defray the expenses of sewage treatment charges paid to Metro Water Recovery, operations and maintenance of the system and the repair and replacement of aging infrastructure. Sewer billing is determined by a 4-month total water usage between November and February based on Denver Water meter readings. Water usage is determined each year just prior to the start of the annual billing cycle. The annual billing cycle starts in April and billing is divided into quarters as a convenience to the customers.

There WILL NOT be a sewer rate increase on the BCWSD sewer billing for 2023 since sewer billing amounts are sufficient to cover the O&M expenses for the BCWSD sewage collection system and the sewage treatment charges paid to Metro Water Recovery.

  • The 2024 Annual Sanitary Sewer Rate is $16.60 per thousand gallons of water used.
  • The 2024 Residential Annual Minimum is $229.00 and billed at $57.25 per quarter.
  • The  2024 Commercial Annual Minimum is $397.00 and billed at $99.25 per quarter.

For sewer billing questions call 303-986-3442.  Payments over the phone are NOT available.
