2019 MSD Wastewater Rate Proposal FlyerWHAT IS A WASTEWATER CAPITAL RATE? The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) is both a wastewater and stormwater utility. As such, funds must be accounted for separately. MSD submitted a rate proposal to its Rate Commission for wastewater rates for fiscal years 2021–2024 (July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2024). These proposed changes would apply to all MSD customers. 2019 MSD RATEPROPOSAL WASTEWATER IDENTIFIED MSD’s wastewater management involves the collection and treatment of “used” water from sinks, toilets, and floor drains at one of seven treatment plants. Here, the “used” water is treated to high standards before returning to our region’s waterways. WASTEWATERSERVICE MSD proposes authorization of $500 million in additional bonds to fund this four-year capital program. The bonds will make needed rate increases more manageable.

Within this program, MSD would: • Eliminate sanitary (wastewater) sewer overflows from sewer pipes • Reduce combined sewer overflows (where wastewater and stormwater share a pipe) • Prevent building backups • Repair and rehabilitate and aging system • Replace incinerators at Bissell and Lemay treatment plants • Build tunnel from Fenton treatment plant to lower Meramec plant to eliminate the Fenton plant 2019 MSD RATEPROPOSAL CHANGES TO YOUR BILL Based on the typical monthly water usage of a single-family residence, a ratepayer’s monthly wastewater sewer bill would resemble the following rates, shown at left with and without bond approval.
