Sewer Rate Increase 2018

On June 19, 2018, City Council approved new rates for wastewater service effective July 1, 2018. A link to the Sewer Rate Report is provided below for a more detailed description of the rates. 

The City is obligated to establish wastewater rates sufficient to cover all costs of providing wastewater service, including, but not limited to, the costs of operating and maintaining the sewer system, debt service and a provision for a prudent and reasonable reserve, as well as funding for capital projects and asset replacement.

The City’s sewer rates were not sufficient to cover the costs of providing sewer service to its customers. The City of Beaumont owns and operates the Beaumont Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The WWTP receives and treats domestic and commercial/industrial wastewater generated within the City of Beaumont and Highland Springs (portions of unincorporated area of Cherry Valley).

All wastewater discharged from the facility is currently regulated under Order No. R8-2015-0026, NPDES No. CA105376. The City is under Investigative Order, in accordance with California Water Code Section 13267, issued by the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) to upgrade the WWTP and provide salt mitigation. Accordingly, the City is in the process of implementing mandatory upgrades to its WWTP from 4 million gallons per day (MGD) to 6 MGD and designing a pipeline to connect to the Inland Empire Brine Line (IEBL) in San Bernardino to discharge salts that will be treated at Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD).
