Wastewater Rate Increase
Over the last 25 years the City of Fishers has become synonymous with growth. Fishers continues to seek smart ways to protect the city’s fiscal sustainability and maintain the valuable assets during this extended growth phase. 

While continued growth has led to an increase in new commercial and residential connections to the city’s wastewater system, the system’s capacity has not been increased. Past improvements to the system have largely focused on maintenance of the existing infrastructure rather than increasing capacity, due to limits in the wastewater utility fund. As demand on the system increases, capacity must be increased to avoid costly system failures. 

The Fishers Department of Public Works Wastewater Utility has identified three critical capital improvement projects necessary to increase the capacity to convey the wastewater to the treatment plant--currently the most pressing need. City officials adopted a five dollar increase in the monthly wastewater fee to help pay for the immediate infrastructure needs in our community, and to keep the sewer fund solvent for the next several years.
