Fort Smith Officials To Discuss Water & Sewage Bill
FORT SMITH (KFSM) – City officials in Fort Smith will meet tomorrow (Tues. Feb. 23rd) to discuss the upcoming water and sewer rate hikes.
The sewage rate increase would cover the costs needed to bring the city into compliance with the federal Clean Water Act after the Environmental Protection Agency claims Fort Smith broke several aspects of the law. Environmental officials said the city experiences sewage overflow during episodes of heavy rainfall because of the decades-old sanitation system.
The Fort Smith Board of Directors will meet at noon tomorrow at the Fort Smith Public Library in the Community Room.
