Water and Sewer Rate Increase – Facts Sheet
Beginning July 1, 2019, new water and wastewater rates will be effective for all Warren Water customers due to wholesale water and wastewater increases from Bowling Green Municipal Utilities (BGMU) along with Warren Water’s need to rehabilitate and repair aging wastewater infrastructure. The wholesale rate increases are needed to support a water treatment plant expansion from 30 to 45 million gallons per day and wastewater capacity increases in the southern areas of the city and county due to substantial growth. In addition, Warren Water will begin to rehabilitate and repair our core aging infrastructure that was initially installed in the early 1970’s. The total cost of the water and wastewater projects is over $60,000,000. The increase will be the first of four water and wastewater rate increases over the next four years due to the wholesale charge from BGMU.
