Montgomery County to Increase Water and Sewer Rates Beginning in 2018
On Jan. 1, 2018, Montgomery County Environmental Services will initiate an approximate 14% combined rate increase for average residential water and sewer bills in Montgomery County, Ohio. Montgomery County plans to spend about $750 million over the next 20 years to replace and repair the aging water and sewer system. The County will increase rates 14% in 2018, followed by four years of 5.6% rate increases. The 2018 rate increase will vary based on meter size, so customers with larger meters will see a larger increase. After 2018, the rate increase will be a flat percentage increase and will not vary based on meter size. Customers can input their information into an online rate calculator on the County’s website at www.mcohio.org/water and get estimates for their new bills in 2018.
