SD1 2019 Budget Approved

05/31/2018 -

 – The judges-executive for Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties voted today to approve a 2019 fiscal year budget for Sanitation District No. 1 (SD1).

SD1 maintains more than 1,600 miles of storm and sanitary sewer pipe and three wastewater treatment facilities that provide essential services to the community.

The budget includes a five-percent increase in sanitary-sewer service fees, which will be reflected on customer bills beginning in August. The average monthly sanitary-sewer bill for residential customers will increase by about 38 cents for every 100 cubic feet (748 gallons of water) of water used, or about $2.28 per month.

The budget allows SD1 to continue to improve its aging infrastructure while keeping pace with regulatory requirements from the Environmental Protection Agency. In addition to infrastructure improvements and regulatory hurdles, SD1 is experiencing increased pension, health care and energy costs.

“In order to minimize these impacts on our customers, I’m pleased to report that we were able to cut other areas of our budget by almost a million dollars through the consolidation of jobs and streamlining our operations,” said SD1 Executive Director Adam Chaney.

Some of the SD1 projects approved in this year’s budget include:

  • US 27 and AA Highway sewer improvements, which will repair failing assets; reduce overflows along Industrial Road and Route 8 in Highland Heights and Silver Grove; and spur economic development.

  • Elsmere Corridor sewer upgrades, which will repair failing assets and eliminate an estimated 1.87 million gallons of sanitary system overflows that currently discharge during rain events.

  • Sanitary-sewer system upgrades in various parts of Boone County to reduce overflows, increase capacity and allow for continued economic development.

SD1 recently reduced its storm water boundary to eliminate approximately 1,500 parcels in mostly rural areas. The current storm water fee of $5.04 per month is budgeted to remain the same for fiscal year 2019.
