Whitewater, Wis. June 11, 2019- The City of Whitewater Common Council approved an increase to sewer rates at its May 21, 2019 meeting. The change will take effect June 27, 2019.
Residents will see an increase only in the sanitary portion of their utility bill as a direct result of the recent improvements at the wastewater treatment facility as well as street reconstruction projects completed through the Capital Improvement Program.
Based on the average water use among residential customers in 2017, the average resident using approximately:
• 3,000 gallons (low use) of water per month would experience an increase of $7.76 per month
• 4,000 gallons (average use) of water per month would experience an increase of $9.09 per month
• 5,000 gallons (high use) of water per month would experience an increase of $10.43 per month
The improvements were necessary to maintain sewage treatment quality at the wastewater utility and an effective collection system. This increase will ensure the sewer utility remains in compliance with the its bond covenants.
