Financial Impact

The charges for treatment of leachate will generate approximately $49,000.00 annually for the Hernando County Water and Sewer District (Environmental Services Division) and will be deposited to Revenue Account No. 4111-3435001, Sewer Utility Services.


An agenda item (MT #3439) was approved by the Board on 04/13/10 to connect the Landfill force main to the Seville Force Main for purposes of treating leachate from the Landfill. The attached resolution sets the rates for the treatment of the leachate. The rates and charges for the Hernando County Landfill will be the same as those approved on June 9, 2009 for Fiscal Years 2010-2014, which includes the $237.60 monthly base charge and the $.20 per thousand gallons wastewater gallonage charge. There will be an additional Leachate Surcharge of $.24 per thousand gallons of leachate treatment. The total cost for leachate treatment will be the $237.60 monthly base facility charge and $3.44 per thousand gallons of leachate treated. The Hernando County Water and Sewer District will bill the Landfill for Leachate treatment beginning in Fiscal Year 2013.
