Greenville Water and Sewer Rates to Rise in the Fall

During the Greenville City Council meeting on April 23, 2024, officials approved a $100 million bonds package for crucial water projects. This initial funding is part of a larger plan, with an additional $100 million anticipated in the future to complete proposed improvements.

A representative from the city confirmed that water and sewer rates will rise starting this October. The increase, estimated to be between 25 and 30 percent of current rates, is necessitated by the need for extensive upgrades. Specifically, the wastewater treatment plant requires a $50 million expansion, while a new water treatment plant, estimated to cost over $80 million, is deemed essential.
