Des Moines sewer rates to start rising by 6% annually
February 22, 2008
In order to pay for a $250 million sewer upgrade required by the EPA, the city of Des Moines is planning to instate sewer-rate increases of 6% a year
for at least the next three years. The EPA is requiring lots of cities, including Des Moines, to separate their sanitary sewers from their storm sewers. Those costs are arriving on top of existing needs to replace aging systems out of ordinary wear and tear.

and gas-detection sensors
