Understand Wastewater Rates


The Vallejo Flood & Wastewater District is responsible for carefully treating billions of gallons of sewage so it is clean and safe for our residents and environment. The District’s miles of
sewer pipes (a distance equivalent to driving from Vallejo to Riverside) need ongoing maintenance or replacement—portions near Mare Island date back to the 1850s Victorian era. These sewer pipes, the Vallejo-based wastewater treatment plant, and more than 35 sewage pump stations are reliant on public funding for proper maintenance.

On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, the District's Board of Trustees unanimously voted to approve updated sewer rates to address these aging infrastructure needs in a manner that is fair and equitable for every ratepayer. All business and residential ratepayers were informed about the rate changes and opportunities to learn more and comment. We deeply appreciate the vote of confidence by our Trustees and the Vallejo community, and will continue to keep you informed of the ways we use your rates to improve the safety and efficiency of our operations.
