Oconee County Water and Sewer Rates To Increase Again If Commissioners Approve Utility Department Request

About 3 Percent Jump

Water and sewer customers in Oconee County will pay about 3 percent more in fees starting July 1 if the Board of Commissioners approves the budget request presented by Utility Department Director Chris Thomas earlier this month.

The water rate increase would be the seventh in as many years for the county, and the sewer rate increase would be the sixth in six years.
