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 a main interceptor line belonging to the the South Fork Coeur d'Alene River Sewer District. 

The other bill you receive is from the SFSD. They own and maintain the main interceptor line and the treatment facility located at Page. The charges on this bill are for the maintenance & operation of the interceptor and the treatment plant and this service is billed quarterly by the Sewer District. 

In July of 2002 the City of Kellogg implemented a sewer maintenance fee to help defray the ongoing costs of operation, repair and maintenance of these aging main sewer lines.  Nearly all of these main lines will be replaced during the Road & Sewer Rehabilitation Project that began in 2015. 

Current Rates are as follows:

  • Residential $20.00
  • Commercial-$28.00
  • Additional Multiple Units -$15.00 ea
