Your sewer bill is calculated based on consumption (how many MCF's that you use, 1 MCF=7,500 gallons of water). Euclid residents pay $72.24 per MCF. The incremental breakdown of this charge is as follows:

$ 26.60  - For the operation, maintenance, and repair of the waste-water treatment plant. (ORD. No. 32-2012)
$ 13.97  - For Capital - these funds are used to retire debt incurred by construction projects, expansion, etc., necessary to meet effluent limitations and requirements. (ORD. No. 32-2012)
$ 19.37  - Peterson charge. This is used to raise sufficient revenue to finance new sewer construction within the city. (ORD. No. 111-2000, Amended ORD. No.33-2012)
$ 2.30  - Charged by the City of Cleveland Water Department for meter reading services.
$ 10.00  - To be used for replacement and repair of aged and leaking City-owned water mains and lines. (ORD. No. 84-1997, Amended ORD. No. 34-2012)

Homestead Exemption

A discount not to exceed 45% of the total annual capital charges included in the sewer service billings. To qualify, a Euclid resident must be permanently and totally disabled, or sixty-five (65) years of age and older, or otherwise as provided by law and who have applied for and received the Homestead exemption status allowed by the Cleveland Water Department. The mayor may apply the discount by a uniform reduction on all billings or by a reduction not to exceed 40% on any single quarterly bill.

Summer Sprinkling Program

The Summer Sprinkling Program is the vehicle by which the District will assess sewer service charges to eligible users. Upon receipt of timely application, (available at the Service Directors office) the City shall provide Summer Sprinkling Rates to eligible users. These rates shall be provided by basing the sewer charges during the summer billing period on the smaller of either the actual consumption or a calculated consumption based on winter usage.

There is a one time $10.00 fee for the application.
Summer billing period shall mean the period between May 1st and September 30th inclusive.
Winter billing period shall mean the period between October 1st and April 30th.

There is no guarantee that you will see a savings, as everyone's water consumption is different. With this program, if you use more water during the summer billing period (May 1st through September 30th) than you used during the previous seven months (the winter billing period - October 1st through April 30th), you should see a reduction in your sewer bill.
