Sewerage District #1

The mission of Sewerage District No. 1 is to maintain the health and safety of Iberia Parish residents through wastewater treatment and collection, according to guidelines provided by the Department of Environmental Quality and the Environmental Protection Agency.

The district is responsible for the maintenance of more than 80 miles of sewer lines and has more than 3,500 residential and commercial customers throughout the parish. Most of the district’s sewage flows to a central treatment plant located at Parker Street. In addition, the district has 82 pump stations throughout the collection system to facilitate the flow of sewage over longer distances. Portions of the district in the southern sections of the parish flow into a wastewater treatment plant on Sucrose Drive that is solely owned and operated by the City of New Iberia.

Sewerage District No. 1 has a full-time staff consisting of an executive director, an executive assistant, a clerk, and two field technicians. Wastewater plant operations are administered and monitored through certified, third-party contractors.

Customers are charged according to a flow rate. Residential customer rates are $35.09 for the first 2000 gallons, then $6.61 per 1,000 gallons thereafter. Commercial customer rates are $41.28 for the first 2,000 gallons, then $8.26 per 1,000 gallons thereafter. Unmetered residential customers are billed a flat rate of $45.41. Unmetered commercial customers are billed a flat rate of $61.92

Located at 2617 Northside Road, Suite 100, New Iberia, LA 70563, the office is open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

  • Those contemplating residential or commercial construction inside the parish (but outside of the New Iberia city limits) must first contact the Iberia Parish Permit Office, 715-A Weldon Street (337-369-4438), for initial information and guidance in the permitting process. The necessary application for sewage collection services can then be completed at the Sewerage District Office. However, you must visit the Iberia Parish Permit Office first to begin the process.

Sewerage District No. 1 is governed by a five-member volunteer board that meets the fourth Tuesday of every month at 4:00 pm in the board meeting room located at the main office. The Board of Directors is responsible for approving the budget and overseeing all operations that govern the District.
