Monthly Wastewater Fee



City residents that are connected to the City’s wastewater system are billed for this service via a City “sewer charge” that appears on Greenville Water’s consolidated billing statement.         

Beginning in FY 2017-18, City residents’ monthly bill will reflect two Wastewater Fee components: a “Base Monthly Charge” and a “Monthly Rehabilitation Fee.” These combined components appear as a single “sewer charge” on Greenville Water’s billing statement. The Base Monthly Charge covers the cost of normal operations and maintenance of the City’s wastewater collection system, as well as paying for debt issued prior to July 2016 in connection with major wastewater rehabilitation costs. The Monthly Rehabilitation Fee covers the repayment of newly incurred debt related to a system-wide wastewater rehabilitation plan that will occur over the next ten years, beginning in FY 2017-18.
