Batavia, Ohio – Clermont County says that in 2021, the average residential water and sewer bills (due every two months) will increase by $5.88. These are changes recommended by the NewGen Strategies & Solutions consulting firm. Approval by the Board of County Commissioners is expected at their Dec. 28 meeting.
According to the County, the annual rate increases are projected to increase revenue 9.5 percent for water and 3 percent for sewer and will help pay for ongoing replacement of an “aging” treatment, distribution and collection system as well as regular maintenance and operation.
“We pride ourselves in providing affordable water and sewer rates,” said Lyle Bloom, the director of the Clermont County Water Resources Department. He noted that sewer rates are currently less than the 1993 rates and the last water rate increase came in 2015.
Clermont County “by far has the lowest water and sewer rates in Southwest Ohio” according to NewGen. You can read their report HERE.
