Water, sewer and garbage are “utilities,” each funded by the fees charged to customers to cover the cost of providing each of those those utility services. Costs include daily labor and supplies as well as long term capital improvements.

Many cities contract out their utility services. Biggs runs its own water and sewer systems — both operations requiring licensing and continual monitoring by certified professionals. Garbage service is contracted to Waste Management, Inc., but the service is billed to customers through the City.

The City also operates its own electric utility — serving customers within the city limits while PG&E serves those outside the city limits. For more information about these services, see the menu to the left of this page. To start or stop service, or to inquire about your utility bills, contact the City customer service office.
