Water Bills Higher Now, Stormwater Comes Later

You should start seeing a slightly higher water bill in La Crosse.


But no stormwater utility. Not yet. The city has just recently been given
the green light to hike water rates. Also recently, the city council
agreed to create a storm water utility. But that won't show up on water
bills until next year. The city's engineering department tells us there's
much to do in preparing for the implementation of the water utility.
Including preparing forms for those applying for credits for mitigating
run-off. Stormwater utility charges will start appearing on bills in
February.
