Rate Increase Effective July 1, 2024

Dear Valued Customer,

Effective July 1, 2024, the Roseburg Urban Sanitary Authority (RUSA) will be adjusting its sanitary sewer service rates. The new rate reflected on the August 1, 2024 billing will be $50 per month per Equivalent Dwelling Unit (EDU) for residential service.  For our non-residential service, your rate may be more than a $10 increase based on the type of business.  While the Board and staff have diligently worked to keep rates low, our current sustainable rate projection is $80 per month.  Although rate increases have historically been few and far between, this has not allowed RUSA to keep up with the needs of our aging infrastructure.  Our customers can  expect we will most likely have annual rate adjustments.

The reasons behind this decision include:

  • Infrastructure Maintenance and Upgrades: Our aging sewer infrastructure requires ongoing maintenance and upgrades. These investments ensure that we continue to provide efficient and environmentally responsible services.  Please click here to review RUSA’s Capital Improvement Plan and Rate Analysis.
  • Compliance with Regulations: To meet state and federal regulations, we must invest in modernizing our facilities and systems. These improvements enhance water quality, protect public health, and will be required of us by regulation.
  • Inflation and Rising Costs: Like any organization, we face inflationary pressures and increased operational costs. The rate adjustment allows us to cover these expenses while maintaining service quality.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
