RESIDENTIAL MONTHLY SERVICE FEE
The sewer service fees for 2018 are $42.00 per ERU* per month billed in arrears.
*Per ERU (*Equivilant Residential Unit)
The District bills in arrears, meaning that we send the monthly bills out the first week of the month following the month of service that has been provided.
Example: Your bill for the month of January will be sent out the
first week of February with a due date of February 21
At the Public Hearing on December 4, 2014, monthly sewer rate increases were approved through the year 2019. Due to both the inflation of our operating costs and the need to save for the existing resident's portion of a new membrane bio reactor sewer facility. The cost adjusted rate from the beginning of service in 1990 would have put the current sewer rate around $47.00 per month, but the Board determined that this would be too much of a sudden increase, so it was decided to adjust the 2015 rate to $36.00 per ERU per month and then add $2.00 per year through 2019. The fees will automatically adjust on the first day of January each year - which will show up on the February billing. Above is a guide of residendial monthly service fees through the year 2019.

However, you can set up automatic payments through the ONLINE BILL PAY service at your bank and keep full control of every payment that is sent out ~ without giving someone else access to your bank account.

A standard ERU for MGSID is 310 gallons per day or 9,300 gallons per month. A business that uses approximately 23,250 gallons of water per month would be billed for 2.5 ERU's times the monthly rate per residential ERU listed above. Commercial accounts can be rerated at any time and water usage reviews can be requested by MGSID at any time. Commercial customers may also be subject to pre-treatment requirements, as well. Please call our office with any questions.

Once paid, MGSID will issue you a letter stating that you have paid your impact fees with the sewer department which will allow your plans to be reviewed by the county.
Impact fees paid on each new lot to be developed in Mountain Green and will be used to finance the new wastewater processing facility that will be necessary to handle the increased capacity each new residence demands.
