The New Richmond Utility Commission and the New Richmond Common Council have approved a three percent Sewer Utility rate increase in order to adequately recover the costs associated with providing wastewater services, meet current and future regulatory and capital requirements, and minimize future debt issuance.

The average residential household (water usage of 3,000 gallons per month) will see an increase of 86 cents per month. A residential household with water usage of 4,000 gallons per month will see an increase of $1.06 per month. The sewer rate increase will take effect January 24, 2022.
