Why do we get billed a Sewer Collection fee in addition to Woodmen Hills Metro District's fee?

Although the Woodmen Hills Metropolitan District provides and bills Paint Brush Hills Metropolitan District residents for the cost of wastewater treatment, the Paint Brush Metropolitan District remains responsible for maintaining the sanitary sewer infrastructure within the District.  The District annually inspects and maintains the sanitary sewer mains and the sanitary sewer lift station.  

The purpose of the Sewer Collection Fee is to recover an equal share of fixed costs related to the District’s sanitary sewer mains and lift station from each customer. The equal share is determined by dividing the annually budgeted fixed costs by the total number of billed Single-Family Equivalent (SFE) units. The Sewer Collection Fee amount billed to a customer is determined by the SFE value of the customer’s water service size.
