Background Information, Rate Change Held to Minimum:

The District’s operation, maintenance and repair programs for its system have been very effective. The sewer pipeline collection system was recently awarded best in our three-county area, however the system is aging and needs critical upgrades. The District is funding only the projects needed to protect the environment, continue to provide quality and reliable services, and meet ever-increasing state and federal regulations. To pay for the upgrades, a sewer service charge increase is required, and it is being held to the minimum level.
