Sewer Availability Charge (SAC)

The Sewer Availability Charge (SAC) is a one-time fee imposed by MCES to customer communities for each new connection or increase in capacity demand of the Metropolitan Disposal System.

The customer communities may pass the SAC fee along with possible local fees to the building or property owners. The SAC fee is usually assigned when a building permit is issued for either a new building or a remodeling permit or when a connection permit is issued for an existing building connecting to the sanitary sewer system for the first time. One SAC unit equals 274 gallons of maximum potential daily wastewater flow capacity. A freestanding, single-family residence is charged one SAC unit, a base unit. Other types of buildings may pay a SAC fee based on the estimated potential capacity of wastewater.
