Louisville MSD raises rates for Jefferson and Oldham County customers
Jefferson County residential customers can expect an average rate increase of $4.84 on their monthly wastewater bill. Oldham County customers will see an average increase of about $3.56 per month. The new rates take effect in August.
Metropolitan Sewer District Executive Director Tony Parrott told LPM News Tuesday the additional funding will go toward capital improvements to fix the city’s aging sewer, stormwater and flood protection systems.
“We understand that no one likes rate increases, but our assets are vital to the protection of our community, and it’s also vital for the improvement of the water quality in our waterways,” Parrott said.
