FY2013 - FY2016 Rate Proposal
On May 10, 2011, MSD staff presented a proposal to our Rate Commission recommending customer wastewater rate increases to help fund more than $1 billion in needed wastewater system improvements between Fiscal Years 2013 and 2016.
After a process that included several public hearings, the Rate Commission recommended a proposal that consisted of a series of smaller rate increases to MSD’s Board of Trustees in October 2011. The Board of Trustees approved the proposal in December 2011.
