SAWS Board To Consider Rates and Treatment Plant Expansion

The Sheridan Area Water Supply Joint Powers Board reduced rates for the highest residential water users at their meeting last month. Because the rate decrease was defeated at the June meeting, the Board had to consider only a partial decrease in July and the action left out users with taps larger than 2 inches.

Tonight the board will take a look at those rates and propose a reduction for upper tier users in that group. The Board will also consider an agreement with the City of Sheridan for the design of a project to upgrade the Big Goose Water Treatment Plant. The plant is currently run by SAWS.

The Board is still trying to come up with changes to the ownership agreement with the City, which more fairly distributes the assets and liabilities of the infrastructure required to run the system.

Tonight’s meeting starts at 5 in the Commissioners' meeting room at the Sheridan County Courthouse.
