2023 Sewer Bond

Sewer Bond

Bath voters approved a bond of $24,653,000 to cover sewer-related projects over the next five years. These projects include upgrades to the Water Pollution Control Facility, pump stations, the wastewater collection system, and the removal of combined sewer overflows (CSO).

The City has more than $15 million worth of projects that it needs to complete over the next five years to comply with the Department of Environmental Protection and the City's CSO Master Plan.

Sewer fees were increased 10% on July 1, 2023, to begin to cover the costs of these upgrades and replacements. The fees are planned to increase over the next five years. In 2022, voters approved Charter amendments and council approved TIF amendments that will allow more than $9 million of TIF revenue support for these projects. With a $4 million grant and TIF funding, the five-year need of $37,803,000 will be reduced to the bond amount of $24,653,000.
