Greater Cincinnati Water Works will begin monthly billing in January. This includes the sewer district charges. January bills will be a bit complicated because you’ll actually be paying for all/part of last quarter. See the Enquirer article for details (here) and on GCWW’s web page (here). Sierra Club has been seeking changes to the sewer rate structure to make the rates more equitable. Monthly billing will help you know more quickly if your usage is higher than normal (slow water leaks can add up to big sewer bills!)
Sierra Club addresses failure to enforce environmental law
Sierra Club sends Notice of Intent to File a Citizen Suit under the federal Clean Air Act against greater Cincinnati corporation. We documented over 600 violations that gone unaddressed by Ohio EPA.
