sanitation rate increase

The Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District cleans wastewater (sewage) in the and turns it into resources 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The SCV Sanitation District is a member of the greater Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts (Sanitation Districts), a collection of 24 independent special districts that act as a regional agency to serve over 5.5 million people in 78 cities and unincorporated areas throughout Los Angeles County. The Sanitation Districts clean about 391 million gallons of wastewater per day in a way that is both environmentally sound and cost effective. That’s enough water to fill the Rose Bowl five times every single day.

Wastewater generated in homes and businesses flows through the sewer systems to one of the SCV Sanitation Districts’ two wastewater treatment plants. The wastewater is then cleaned to produce high-quality recycled water that is suitable for a wide range of uses.

The Sanitation Districts have been converting sewage into clean water since 1962. Over that time, water agency partners have recycled over 1.2 trillion gallons of water.

Santa Clarita Valley’s two treatment plants produce approximately 20 million gallons per day of recycled water. While some of it must go to maintain the habitat of the Santa Clara River, up to seven million gallons per day of this water is available for irrigation of schools, parks, and other community facilities. This locally sourced water helps conserve drinking water.

To see how the rate increase will affect your property taxes you will need your Assesor’s ID parcel number.
