LAS VEGAS -- Annual sewer bills for 9,094 commercial and 231,758 residential customers of the Clark County Water Reclamation District are being printed this week and are going out in the mail next week – and they’re 4 percent lower than last year.

The County Commission, acting as the Board of Trustees for the Clark County Water Reclamation District, in March approved the reduced rates following a review it had ordered of the district’s financial plan and $700 million capital plan.

The annual sewer service fee is $221.09 per house (labeled an “equivalent residential unit” or “ERU” by the district), down from last year’s rate of $230.30 per house. Those having sewer hookups in facilities other than houses pay a fraction or multiple of the ERU, depending upon nature of the facility.

“It is a positive sign that we are able to provide a reduction for our customers in their annual sewer bill,” said Commissioner Larry Brown, chairman of the district’s Board of Trustees.

The Water Reclamation District is the wastewater agency serving unincorporated Clark County. In addition to the unincorporated areas within the Las Vegas Valley, the district provides wastewater collection and treatment in the communities of Blue Diamond, Indian Springs, Laughlin, Moapa Valley and Searchlight.

With seven treatment facilities, the district collects and reclaims more than 100 million gallons of wastewater each day.
