The wastewater of the City is collected and treated by the wastewater system operated by the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD). The sewer bill is composed of 4 charges:
The MMSD connection charge is billed by the city on behalf of MMSD to cover costs to run sewage treatment plants and the deep tunnel system. The 2018 rate is $ 7.60 per connection.
The MMSD volumetric rate is also billed on behalf of MMSD and is based on your water consumption. Milwaukee Water Works supplies us with meter reads. The 2018 rate is $ 2.20 per thousand gallons. The 1st quarter reflects the meter reads taken from mid-October to mid-January (winter read). Residential customers (1-4 family units) are billed on this actual consumption read for the 1st Quarter sewer bill. The next three quarters are billed on this same consumption (dependent on consistency). Commercial customers are charged for actual water usage reported on all 4 quarters. Customers who do not discharge all of it to the sewer system may be certified by MMSD for a discounted charge. Call MMSD at 414-272-5100. The minimum charge on the volumetric rate is $ 6.00.
The local sewer charge is billed to meet the capital, operating and maintenance expenses of its local sewer system. This fee for 2018 is $24.00 per unit. A single family home is one unit. A duplex would be a two unit dwelling. An apartment building with 8 apartments and/or commercial buildings with 8 separate offices would be an 8 unit dwelling. This charge is computed by dividing the revenue shown on the Greenfield Sewer Service fund budget by the total number of units in the city.
This charge was established in August of 2009 in order to meet new state requirements to manage storm water quality and quantity on all impervious surfaces. The average impervious surface per single residential unit is 3,630 square feet, or 1 ERU (equivalent runoff unit). Per a revised resolution passed by council in October 2017, the current quarterly charge is $ 17.00 per ERU. Duplexes are based on 1.1 ERU and any business or residential dwelling 3 units or larger are based upon actual square footage of impervious surface to determine the ERU.
