Water Rate Increase Approved In NFDL

The North Fond du Lac Village Board this week approved an increase in water rates. Village Administrator Chuck Hornung says the Wisconsin Public Service Commission had already approved the 3 percent increase. He says they are also increasing the wastewater rates. Hornung says they anticipate an increase in costs from the Fond du Lac Wastewater Treatment Plant because of increased costs in phosphorous limitations. He says it’s the first increase in water and wastewater rates for village residents since 2010. He says for the typical residential customer that will be about a $6 increase in their quarterly bill.
