Why are my water fees increasing?
    • The majority of the Sheridan water infrastructure was constructed in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Upgrades to the aging system are needed, including, but not limited to:
      1. New concrete block buildings to protect Wells 1 and 2.
      2. Upgrades to telemetry programs to ensure continued flow to each resident.
      3. Water valve isolation upgrades, including creating a loop on 8th and 9th Streets to ensure proper flow and allow system isolation if maintenance/repairs are needed. 
    • Necessary projects are estimated to cost in excess of $400,000. In addition to monies collected through these fee increases, grants are anticipated to fund portions of the projects. 
    • It is anticipated that these projects will commence in 2025 or later depending upon financial constraints
