CITY CLEVELAND FIXED SEWER RATES

Sewer rates help Cleveland Water Pollution Control (WPC) conduct daily maintenance and repairs to the city’s aging sewer system, including its 12 pump stations.

Residential properties within the city of Cleveland are assessed a fixed sewer maintenance rate per month. Properties with larger meters are assessed at a higher rate. Those rates will increase by $3.00 in 2018, based on a rate increase schedule that was effective April 1, 2015. That increase, which was the first for Cleveland in nearly 10 years, is to raise about $35 million over five years to address sewer issues more proactively and better serve Cleveland residents and business owners.

Currently, about 27% of the city’s 1,436 miles of storm and wastewater sewer lines are more than 100 years old. More frequently there are problems with collapsing sewer pipes that cause street caving, and some times there is street and basement flooding because of blockages and sewer line breaks.

A rate discount program is available for senior citizens or income-eligible customers who are homeowners and may need assistance. For more information the Cleveland Homestead Program, go to Cleveland Homestead Program or call 216.664.3130.
