Clark Lake sewer rates go up again.  Columbia Township trustees voted tonight to pass along a rate hike as required by Leoni Township.  Leoni Township operates the sewage treatment plant for several townships, including Columbia.  The new quarterly rate as of April 1st will be $246.  

The rate breakdown below displays the costs by month.

Clark Lake’s repair and replacement costs are higher.  The grinder pumps at Clark Lake are 27 years old.  After multiple rebuilds, they were no longer reliable.  So, a schedule to replace them was created, increasing costs. 

Meanwhile work is almost complete on the Kentucky Point and Eagle Point lift stations.  For details from a previous report, please click here
