BELLINGHAM, Wash. – People who live in Geneva, Sudden Valley and other areas around Lake Whatcom should get prepared for higher water and sewer bills.

Lake Whatcom Water and Sewer District Commissioner, Deb Lambert says they need to spend $2.5 million on pipe replacement.

 

The district commission is considering incremental rate hikes that would mean about a $7.00 increase on sewer bills and a nearly $3.00 hike in water bills next year.

By 2019, residents could be paying $20.00 more for sewer and water.

People can comment on the proposal tonight at 7:00 pm at the water district office on Lakeway.
