The Sewer Service Charge (SSC) is applied to metered water use to obtain money for constructing and maintaining sewers and sewage treatment plants, and for treating sewage which is discharged into the sewer system. The officially adopted ordinances, rules, and regulations will rule in case of any conflicts. Refer to Los Angeles Municipal Code (LAMC) Section 64.41, as modified or to the actual LAMC code citing. This fee is on your Department of Water and Power (DWP) bill, if you are currently billed for the service. The charge is based on metered water use and generates funds for constructing and maintaining wastewater facilities such as sewers and sewage treatment plants, and for treating the sewage that is discharged into the sewer system. The current SSC rate is $5.80 per 748 gallons or one HCF (hundred cubic feet) of sewage volume. For this fiscal year, the DWCF is 0.83 and the Rainy Season Review Period (RSRP) was from November 17, 2019 to April 22, 2020. The City Median is 16 HCF for a 60 day billing cycle. Customers who do not have a complete billing period within the RSRP are charged based on the City Median. The low income surcharge (LIS) is 0.00474 of your SSC amount. For commercial customers, the default percentage discharge is 93%.
