MSD Residential Bill Charges
EPA Consent Decree Surcharge – this charge is to help cover federally mandated improvements and new infrastructure, which will allow MSD to capture and treat 98 percent of the combined sewer overflow volume in a typical rainfall year. And, eliminate sewer overflows in the separate sanitary system.
Wastewater Service Charge – this is a fixed fee for the maintenance and operation of MSD’s five water quality treatment centers, which process and treat wastewater 24/7/365.
Wastewater Volume Charge – this charge is based on water consumption as measured on the Louisville Water Company meter. A volume rate per 1,000 gallons or CON (Consumption) is the unit of measurement.
Stormwater/Drainage Charge – this fee covers Stormwater, Drainage and Flood Protection Services for the benefit of the entire community. The residential charge is based on one ESU (Equivalent Service Unit), which equals 2,500 square feet of impervious surface—areas such as rooftops and driveways that do not allow water to absorb into the ground.
