Queen Creek Sewer Averaging 

Sewer rates are set annually and are affected by your water consumption during all or a portion of November, December, January and February, depending on when your water meter is read. In general, this is when the least amount of water is being used outside of the home. Help keep your sewer rate lower by following water conservation practices more closely during this four-month period. The less water you use during this time, the lower your sewer rate will be for the next year.

Sewer fees are based on 90 percent (for single family residences) of water consumption billed during three billing cycles over the winter months. To request a sewer rate review (due to a large water leak, filling a swimming pool, etc.) please contact 480-358-3455 or
