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 collections, 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 line and has more than 3,500 residential and commercial customers throughout the parish. Most of the district’s sewerage flows to a central treatment plant, located at Cotton Street. In addition, the district has 82 pump stations throughout the collection system to facilitate the flow of sewerage 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.

Residential customers pay according to flow rate or $34.00 for the first 2000 gallons then 80% of 1000 gallons thereafter at $8.00 per 1,000 gallons. Commercial customers are $40.00 for the first 2,000 gallons then 80% of 1,000 gallons thereafter at $10.00 per 1,000 gallons. Unmetered customers will pay $44.00 for residential and $60.00 for commercial customers.

Located at 2617 Northside Road, Suite 100, 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 permit application for sewerage treatment services can then be picked up at the Sewerage District Office or downloaded using the link below. However, you must visit the Parish Permit Office first to begin the process.

A five-member volunteer board that is responsible for approving the budget and overseeing all operations governs the district.
