Water, sewer rates to increase

March 26, 2013

The Sammamish Plateau Water & Sewer District approved a hike to both water and sewer rates at its March 18 meeting.

On a 4-0 vote (Commission President Tom Harman was absent for the vote), rates will go up 2 percent for water and 16 percent for sewer. The combined increase will be about 7.9 percent. For most single-family households, that will mean an average water bill increase of 65 cents per month, bringing their bill to $35.17, according to the district.

Sewer rates will climb by an average of $4.03 per month, bringing those bills to $29.20.
