City of Whitewater Raises Sewer Rates in Result to Wastewater Facility Updates

Press Release

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.

Learn more about the wastewater project or view the public notice for the rate increase. For additional questions related to the wastewater project, call 262-473-0560.

Utility bill questions can be forwarded to the Finance Department at 262-473-1383 or 262-473-1382.
