Learn More about Proposed Sanitary Sewer Rate Realignment

05/07/2019 -

There is some confusion out there about SD1's proposed sanitary sewer rate realignment. In essence, this proposed structure is about keeping rates affordable for our customers. 

There are many customers who are paying more than they should for sewer services, and we believe that is not fair. This plan reduces sewer rates for everyone in Northern Kentucky who pays above average sewer bills.

Low-volume users will still be paying less than high-volume users, but the gap between them will shrink under this plan. Given that the vast majority of SD1 costs are fixed, this will more closely align rates with actual costs and create a fairer system for all.

For low-income and/or fixed-income residents who are also low-volume customers, we are working with the Brighton Center to develop a Customer Assistance Program that will help them adjust to the impact of this realignment.
