Sanitation District


 The Lemon Grove Sanitation District, which assumed maintenance and repair of the sanitary sewer main lines from the County of San Diego on July 1, 1989, provides wastewater collection system management services for the City and its residents. These services include the transport of wastewater to the San Diego Metropolitan Wastewater Department for treatment, sewer line operations and maintenance, management of sewer finances, revenue sources and user charges, and other related duties to ensure the system continues to operate efficiently.

The District charges a sewer service fee which is billed annually on the property tax statement. You can look at your bill here by using your Address, Assessor Parcel Number or Supplemental bill number. For questions regarding your bill call, 1-888-683-5234.
