Sacramento’s Regional San and Sac Sewer Will Legally Merge Into One Entity Under the Sac Sewer Name


The Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District (Regional San) and Sacramento Area Sewer District (SacSewer) are pleased to announce the legal merger of the two districts into one. The merger will not change any of the sewage services provided—they will simply become one single service provider for customers.

To this point, SacSewer and Regional San have been separate legal entities being governed by different Boards of Directors. Moving forward, policy decisions will be made under one Board of Directors with a shared mission and vision, thereby streamlining and broadening policy and leadership decision-making. The merger will also create unity among workforce and organizational culture, as well as enhance the ability to recruit and retain the highest quality employees.

The merger has been approved by the necessary parties and will go into effect on January 1, 2024. Starting then, both districts operate as a consolidated sewer utility called the Sacramento Area Sewer District, or SacSewer for short.

Legally merging the two districts will allow both entities to provide customers with the most efficient and effective sewage collection, treatment, and resource recovery services.
