ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District wants to raise rates to rake in $1 billion for maintenance.

To do this, the average household will have to see increased rates of $18 a month over the next four years.

A proposed series of rate hikes over several years would drive the average household bill to about $47 a month.

MSD’s staff insists it needs the cash to make improvements and keep the sewer system running.
