Collection Systems

The Collection System Committee serves as the focal point for dealing with regulatory issues and actions related to collection systems. The Committee also is a mechanism for sharing collection systems information among agencies.

BACWA collects information from its member agencies on their sewer rates.  The Sewer Rate Survey was last updated in May 2017 (excel version).  If your agency’s sewer rate information has changed, please input the new information into this form.
