EXPLANATION OF UTILITY FEES

The Solid Waste fee is based on the size of your garbage cart and is collected to fund the costs of operations, maintenance and capital equipment purchases necessary for the collection of garbage, recycled materials, yard waste and bulky waste. Those costs include: personnel, maintenance, vehicle replacement and tipping fees at the Scott Area Landfill and Recycling Center.

The Sanitary Sewer fee is based on water usage and is collected to fund the costs of operations and infrastructure improvement projects necessary for the collection and conveyance of sewage to the Waste Water Treatment Plant in Davenport. Costs include: personnel, maintenance, vehicles and equipment, infrastructure projects and Bettendorf’s proportionate share of the costs to operate and maintain the Waste Water Treatment Plant. If you water your lawn, have a swimming pool or use outside water, you may be interested in Bettendorf’s Sewer Credit Program. This program was designed to give you credit for sewer charges for outdoor water usage. For more information on the Sewer Credit Program, please visit the link on the left side of this page.

The City of Bettendorf has a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit that is administered through the lowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). This permit requires the City to develop storm water management programs that address reduction of storm water discharges and pollutants to the maximum extent possible. The Storm Water fee is based on the equivalent runoff unit (ERU) of your property. ERU is a measurement of the impervious areas of the property. Storm water from impervious areas finds its way to the City’s storm sewer system as well as several creeks and streams throughout the City. The Storm Water fee is collected to fund the costs associated with the management of storm water runoff throughout the City. The costs associated with storm water management include: personnel, maintenance, vehicles and equipment and infrastructure improvement projects as well as six controls outlined in the permit.

  • Public education and outreach
  • Public involvement and participation
  • Illicit discharge and elimination
  • Construction site storm water runoff control
  • Post-construction storm water management (detention ponds)
  • Pollution prevention / Good housekeeping practices
