The Clark County Commission approved a rate hike increase for sewer services over the next decade.
Clark County Water Reclamation District officials said today they need the additional revenue to make improvements to the state’s largest wastewater system.
The average residential bill will go up by about $7 a year as a result. It’s the first time the district has raised the rates of service since 2012. Commissioners approved the rate increase in a unanimous vote and there was no public opposition.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that even with the new service charge, district customers still pay some of the lowest sewer rates in the country.
