Contact Sewer Rating at 208-384-3900 or send an e-mail to rating@cityofboise for fee information. In general, fees paid to the city prior to connection to the sanitary sewer system consist of two major components: connection (capacity) fees, and assessment fees.

  • Connection (capacity) fees
    Commercial connection (capacity) fees are calculated per plumbing fixture based on the estimated flow and strength of the waste. Food service and industrial type services are calculated differently. Contact Sewer Rating at 208-384-3900 or send and e-mail to rating@cityofboise for more information.

  • Assessment fees
    The assessment fee is based on the average cost of an 8-inch sewer line in the street and will include a service line to the edge of the right-of-way of your property. The assessment is an average cost to construct pipe, manholes, pavement restoration, and permits as well as design, survey and inspection of the project. The assessment fee is an average cost of projects rather than dividing the cost of the particular project which serves your area.

Pretreatment Program
The Pretreatment Program objectives are met by helping local businesses understand their responsibilities under the Boise City Code and the Federal Pretreatment Rules (pollution control requirements).Boise City's Pretreatment Program local legal authority is established by Title 8, Chapter 14 of the Boise City Code.

If you are an industrial or commercial business that discharges or plans to discharge wastewater to the Boise City sewer system, you should check with the Boise Pretreatment Program to determine which pretreatment requirements may apply to your wastewater discharge and if you need to apply for a permit.
