Mission Canyon Sewer District

The Mission Canyon Sewer District provides wastewater collection to the Mission Canyon area. The system consists of approximately 12 miles of pipeline and two lift stations. The District is regulated by the Regional Water Quality Control Board in San Luis Obispo. Wastewater is further collected, treated, and disposed of by the City of Santa Barbara at the El Estero wastewater treatment plant pursuant to a 2015 Joint Powers Agreement.  The user fee for fiscal year 2016-17 (July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017) is $264 per year for maintenance.  The city of Santa Barbara issues a separate bill to these customers for water and sewer services.

In addition, certain parcels within the District remaining on septic systems were conditioned to be monitored for septic system performance.  A maintenance fee of $24.00 per septic system per year is collected on the tax roll as a fixed charge.  This program is administered by the Environmental Health Services Division of the Public Health Department.
