Dyersville residents will see an increase in their water and sewer rates beginning next month.
The water rate will go up to $6.10 per thousand gallons (up from $5.95) – that will be coupled with a SRF fee of 58-cents per thousand gallons.
The sewer rate will increase to $9.10 per thousand gallons (up from $8.90) – and that will be coupled with a SRF fee of $2.66 per thousand gallons.
The increase will help cover debt due to environmental issues from the DNR that required the City of Dyersville to build the Water Treatment Plant, along with Phase 3 of the Wastewater Treatment Facility.
That SRF fee (which is a State Revolving Fund fee) helps cover the water and sewer revenue debt based on the amount of water used.
The new rates were approved by the Dyersville City Council Monday night and will go into effect in time for the September billing.
