Wausau sewer rates to go up

The Wausau City Council approves a 25 percent increase in the sewage rate.

The last increase was 8 percent in January 2009.

Three years before that, rates went up 20 percent.

Wausau Wastewater Treatment Plant leaders say the utility has been struggling financially for a number of years.

And Wausau maintains relatively low rates compared to similar-sized communities.

The facility, originally built in 1940, has equipment that has reached the end of its useful life.
