Why do I pay two sewer bills?

One bill you receive is from the City of Kellogg. This charge is for maintenance of the main sewer lines that your individual lateral service lines are connected to. These main lines carry your sewage to the treatment plant and this service is billed monthly.

The second bill you receive is from the South Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River Sewer District. They operate the treatment facility located at Page and this charge is for treating the sewage. They bill property owners for this service quarterly. 

In July of 2002 the City of Kellogg implemented a sewer maintenance fee for the repair, operation and maintenance of these main sewer lines. There are numerous areas where new sewer lines are needed and the City is in the process of replacing most of these lines at this time. 

Rates are as follows:

  • Residential $15.00
  • Commercial-$23.00
  • Additional Multiple Units-$15.00
