(EVANSVILLE, IN)- Allen Mounts, Director of the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) says $540 million is the price tag on the final plan that will be sent to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at the end of the month.
The plan would be implemented over 28 years.
Through that time sewer rates would increase from the average $26 per month to almost $90.
The city submitted a first draft to the EPA last summer. Since then, Mounts says the EWSU had some more time to do extra research and analysis.
