NKY residents will pay
more for sewers
Many Northern Kentucky residentsí wastewater bills will be going up starting in August to help pay for the replacement of Covington's ancient sewer system.
Judge-executives for Boone, Kenton, and Campbell counties have approved a five percent increase for Sanitation District 1's sanitary sewer service fees. The average residential customer will see a monthly increase of about $2.16, or 36-cents per hundred cubic feet of water usage. Each hundred cubic foot will soon cost $7.73, notes Eagle Country Online using other media sources and an SD1 press release.
The storm water fee will not change, instead remaining at $5.04.
According to SD1, the revenue raised by the rate hike will be used to make improvements to the aging sanitary sewer system, meet federal requirements to reduce sewer overflows and improve water quality, and resolve community issues ranging from basement backups to sewer capacity.
