Recycled Water Rate

Future Recycled Water Rate Increase

Recycled Water Logo

The Public Utilities Department began selling recycled water in October 1997, at an initial rate of $1.34 per HCF (an HCF is equal to 748 gallons). The San Diego City Council lowered the recycled rate to $0.80 per HCF on July 1, 2001, to encourage businesses, including homeowner associations, to use recycled water. The Council adopted rate for recycled water has not been increased since then.

Under the direction of City Council, the Public Utilities Department commissioned a rate study to review all financial aspects related to the production, sale, and distribution of recycled water. Moreover, the study will recommend a pricing structure that covers the actual cost of producing recycled water.
