The cost of disposal is dependent on three factors:
- Volume Discharged
- Concentration of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)
- Concentration of Total Suspended Solids (TSS)
Brine Line disposal costs on the order of $0.035 to $0.05/gallon for low concentration BOD/TSS brine waste, compared to $0.25/gallon for brine waste disposal in the Los Angeles Basin at a hazardous material handling facility.

Because of the Brine Line, customers in the Inland Empire may have a cost advantage over those in the rest of the Los Angeles Basin.
