Ramona has its own sewer system and all buildings within city limits must be connected to the sewer system, unless buildings are not in use and the sewer has been capped (and capping has been approved by City Council). The city’s sewer ponds are located northeast of Ramona on Quail Creek Rd.
Existing residence: $10/month, paid twice a year in April & October (the City Clerk issues a bill). You also have the option to pay once a year in October or pay monthly. If you’re just moving into a residence, the sewer fees begin the month you move in. (The only exception to this is if there are delinquent sewer fees on a property—the new owner is responsible for all unpaid sewer fees.)
New construction: $25 fee for hook-up, and a $500 deposit is given to the City of Ramona and held until you have a plumber hook up your sewer. If there are no damages to the city system, the $500 check is returned. Thereafter, the $10/month fee applies.

New hook-up: When the water system was put into place in Ramona in 1995, residents were given the option to hook into rural water for a nominal fee. For those who opted not to get rural water at that time, but now wish to hook into the system, the hook-up fee is between $1,200 and $1,500 and homeowner pays any costs associated with getting the water lines dug and reaching the residence.
