Press: Area Faces 2X/3X Sewer Rates

Take all the acronyms, the scientific formulas, the political agendas at cross purposes and the bitter cross-state line disputes. Flush it all down the toilet. And show up at an important public meeting this Wednesday at 5 p.m. in the Post Falls Senior Center. Yes, the issue is about your sewer bill, to put it succinctly. But it's about much more than that, too. If the federal Environmental Protection Agency moves ahead with plans to clamp the most restrictive water quality standards in the nation on North Idaho, your sewer bill doubling or tripling in the next couple of years could be the least of your concerns/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here. (SR file photo: Coeur d'Alene water superintendent Sid Fredrickson)

Question: Can Kootenai County residents afford to pay for more restrictive water quality standards?
