EWSU holding public hearing on possible water rate hike

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Evansville Water and Sewer Utility is proposing a possible water rate hike.

That’s so they could fund a nearly $178 million new water treatment plant.

Officials said over the next five years, they’re proposing an increase to monthly water rates with the highest monthly rate increase no higher than $3.47.

A public hearing is set for Tuesday for those who want to voice their concerns.

That’s set for 3 p.m. at the Civic Center in Room 301.
