Multi-Family

To continue delivering reliable, high quality service, we have approved 5 years of water and wastewater (sewer) service rate increases beginning July 1, of 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Under these rate increases, the average San Francisco multi-family residential household’s combined water and sewer charges will increase an average of 12% each year through 2013.

Your Rates Pay for Critical Water & Sewer Projects
PipesThe rate increases will allow us to continue and accelerate work to rebuild and improve our water and sewer systems. In the last five years, your water rates have funded dozens of upgrades to our City’s water reservoirs, pipelines and pump stations as part of the voter-approved Water System Improvement Program to ensure you continue to receive great drinking water, even after the next major earthquake.

ToiletDrought, Water Conservation & New Water Resources
Making water conservation a part of our daily life and using water more efficiently at our homes and businesses is now more important than ever. Your water rates also fund new projects to develop more diverse water resources that will help San Francisco better prepare for and endure future droughts and drier years that climate change will bring, including new recycled water projects for the City, new groundwater resources and even regional desalination.
