Commercial Sewer Service Charge
Commercial, Institutional & Industrial Rates
Commercial, institutional, and industrial classes of rates are for non-residential dischargers to the storm sewerage system, including commercial and light industrial, heavy industrial, parking lots, schools, churches, and colleges, and are calculated individually. Rates for these parcels include a charge based on acreage, reflecting runoff volume, plus a flat charge, reflecting runoff characteristics (pollutants) for that type of discharger. An annual charge is computed for non-residential users using the following unit rates and placed on the property tax rolls for collection by the Santa Clara County Tax Collector’s Office.
