The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) would like to inform you of its annual public hearings before the Hamilton County Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) to consider its proposed 2020 Operating Budget, proposed 2020-2024 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget, and proposed revised sewer rates for 2020.  

The BoCC is holding two public hearings at the County Administration Building, 138 East Court Street, Room 603, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202:

  • Thursday, December 12, 2019 at 1:15 p.m.
  • Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.

MSD's annual Operating budget, CIP budget, and revised sewer rates are developed and recommended by MSD to the BoCC each year.  

The Operating budget reflects the funding needed to support MSD's operation of its collection and treatment system and the personnel and non-personnel costs to run MSD 24/7/365.  

The CIP budget includes capital items like new sewers, upgrades to treatment plants, and other assets to keep the sewer system in good, working condition and projects mandated by a federal Consent Decree.  

Sewer rates cover a minimum base charge (for the first 3 CCF of water usage), a commodity charge (for water usage above 3 CCF), a surcharge for high strength sewage, and industrial pretreatment charge.

MSD's budgets and sewer rates ensure the protection of public health and the environment throughout Hamilton County.

This notice is available on MSD's website and will also be published in The Cincinnati Enquirer in the Legal Notices section on November 30 and December 7, 2019.
