Residential Utilities


The Public Works Department is responsible for the planning, operation and maintenance of the sanitary sewer system and the storm drainage system. Water and electric services within the city are municipally owned and independently operated by Shakopee Public Utilities.

The Shakopee Public Utilities Commission hires its own employees, sets its own budget, adopts rules and regulations and fixes rates for water and electric services. Sewer, water, electric and storm drainage services are all billed to city residents by Shakopee Public Utilities on a monthly basis.

Sanitary Sewer Rates

The city owns and operates the sanitary sewer collection system. Collected wastewater is conveyed to the Metropolitan Council’s Blue Lake Treatment Plant where it is treated and discharged. Sewer rates are set by the City Council and reflect the costs of operating and maintaining the collection system, as well as the charges imposed by the Metropolitan Council for treatment. Billing and collection for sanitary sewer services are handled by Shakopee Public Utilities on the same statement as water and electrical charges.

From April to November, sanitary sewer fees are capped at 150 percent of your March water usage, with a minimum cap of 5,000 gallons.

Storm Water Rates

Owners of all parcels of property in the city are charged a fee to cover the cost of managing storm water runoff.

The revenue generated by these fees is used for street sweeping and for the maintenance, construction and reconstruction of the storm drainage system in the city. As with the sanitary sewer system, rates are determined by the City Council but billing and collection are handled by Shakopee Public Utilities.
