How much do you pay to flush?

Regional towns are outpacing the national average for wastewater rates
Durango’s wastewater rates rose steeply in recent years to help pay for the construction at the Santa Rita Water Reclamation Facility along South Camino del Rio. Rates across the country are rising as infrastructure ages and new, more stringent regulations for water treatment take effect. The new aeration basins will allow the city to meet the new state regulations for phosphorous and nitrates in the water it puts pack into the river.
Durangoans’ sewer rates will increase by 3 percent next year. Durango is one of the few communities in the region that has a usage charge for sewer rates. Higher rates are helping to pay for the Santa Rita Water Reclamation Facility along South Camino del Rio. The new digester building will produce more methane that will be used to power the plant.
The work at the Santa Rita Water Reclamation Facility will leave very few of the buildings from the old plant standing.
