CUFA members are concerned with high sewer bills and are worried about water and raw sewage in their basements.

The Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) is spending $3.2 billion on Project Groundwork. This project is designed to stop sewage overflows and clean up our rivers and streams. Hamilton County’s sewer system is almost 100 years old, and it is not engineered to meet the needs of our increased population. The sewage overflows are in violation of the Clean Water Act.

When CUFA met with MSD on December 3, 2013 they told us that only 11 of the 159 combined sewage overflows have been fixed since Project Groundwork began in 2006.

Even though the problem still isn’t fixed, our bills have increased 17% just in the last two years! Rates are expected to continue to rise.

Where is our money going? What progress is being made?

CUFA is moving forward with this issue. We want to know where our money is going and how our health is being protected. If you think enough is enough, sign our petition!! Or print your own petition for yourself and neighbors to sign.
