New, higher water and sewer rates will come into effect June 1, 2013.
South Dundas council gave their final bylaw approval to the rate increases at the April 16, South Dundas council meeting.
Once the new rates come into effect, the average household in Morrisburg can expect to see an increase of about 13 percent in their monthly water and sewer bill. The average household in Iroquois can expect to see an increase of about 21 percent.
The increases will help offset the current operating deficits resulting from decreased consumption and will help offset some of the anticipated cost increases associated with bringing the new Iroquois Wastewater Treatment Plant online.
