The Greater Augusta Utility District operates a complex system to collect and manage wastewater and stormwater, comprising:
- wastewater (sewer) pipes
- stormwater drains and catch basins
- a wastewater treatment plant (which also accepts wastewater from four other communities, known as the Trunkline Group)
No one notices the system until something goes wrong, which can not only inconvenience residents, but also create threats to public health and the environment—including our drinking water. That’s why Greater Augusta Utility District works hard to monitor and maintain its system to collect wastewater and stormwater.
We also offer a free public RV dump station service for visiting RV owners.
We charge separate rates for each of our services (drinking water, wastewater and stormwater) in order to fairly apportion the cost of each service among users. To reflect and fairly apportion the growing costs of stormwater management, a Stormwater Work Group was convened to carefully analyze the system and recommend a new rate structure, which was implemented in spring of 2019.
Customers pay for wastewater based on their use of drinking water.
Customers pay for stormwater based on the size of their property that is impermeable and, for businesses, the number of catch basins they use. Here are our current rates.
