It has to go somewhere.

Indoor wastewater is transported from our plumbing fixtures and appliances via the underground pipes that form our sewer system. The City of Frisco utilizes over 686 miles of pipeline infrastructure to transport wastewater from our homes and businesses to one of two wastewater treatment plants where it is cleaned and treated before being released to either flow downstream, or to be reused.

Like other cities, Frisco bases its sewer rates on average water consumption during the winter months. To calculate your residential rate, water usage is tabulated from December to March - the highest month’s usage is dropped - and the remaining three months are averaged.

As sewer services are non-metered, they are calculated when outdoor watering needs are at their lowest for the year. This is yet another reason why it is so important to avoid overseeding your landscape with cool season grasses, such as rye and fescue. For most residential accounts, the City of Frisco cannot distinguish between indoor and outdoor usage, which means, running your sprinkler controller in the winter to water cool season grasses not only puts unnecessary pressure on our reservoirs, but will also result in a higher sewer bill!
You've got questions and our Licensed Irrigators have answers.

This week's question:

Our water bill has been exceptionally high over the past few months, even though we have significantly reduced our outdoor use of water. Does Frisco offer a service to check for leaks or do we find a vendor ourselves?

The City of Frisco does not offer a physical leak detection service. If our licensed irrigators notice a leak during an irrigation inspection they will flag it for the property owner, but they are not going to be actively digging up irrigation lines looking for leaks. If you suspect you have a leak on your line, we can perform a free water meter assessment though. Send an e-mail to and we'll consult your water meter readings to determine if they show any signs of potential leaks on your property.

Whether our licensed irrigators find a leak during an inspection, or we determine there is a high potential for a leak based on your water meter readings, repairing the leak falls on the property owner. If the leak is on your irrigation system then make sure you hire a licensed and insured irrigator to repair it! Internal leaks will need to be fixed by a licensed plumber.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to let us know!

GPCD: Frisco's Water Statistics
The average daily water usage per person in Frisco is known as the GPCD. Calculations are obtained by dividing the total number of gallons used in Frisco by our city's population.

This week in Frisco, the GPCD was 110.
Last week, the GPCD was 115.
