Beginning July first, users of Springfield City Sewer will see an increase in rates.
According to a press release from the City of Springfield, the city is consistently below average on their current rates compared to other similar cities in the Missouri and the Midwest.
In their press release, the City of Springfield writes, “An average residential customer uses 6 CCF and currently receives a bill for $37.63 per month. Following the July 1, 2022 effective date, a residential user with 6 CCF use will receive a bill for $39.60”
The rate increase is intended to help maintain the city’s aging sewer system, and to remain in compliance with the federal Clean Water Act regulations.
