The program provides a way for businesses with reduced or no water use as a result of the pandemic to potentially receive a reduction in their wastewater service charge, according to Robert Ferrante, chief engineer and general manager of the Sanitation Districts.

“We have a long-standing Low-Water Rebate Program that allows low-water users to apply for a reduced service charge. Per the direction of our Boards of Directors, we now have a similar COVID-19 Rebate Program for businesses that have been impacted by this pandemic,” Ferrante said. “This program provides a fair way of charging for our services while providing relief to affected businesses.”
