Sewage rates to dip slightly in northwest Richland

June 20, 2013 

About 10,000 homeowners and businesses in northwest Richland County will pay a little less for sewage service starting July 1.

The rate cut will amount to $2 monthly for homeowners, with commercial reductions based on usage, county officials said Thursday.

The overall savings of $240,000 annually stems from more efficient operations and settlement of a dispute over building a new wastewater facility, officials said.

Those affected are in the Dutch Fork, Harbison, Irmo and Spring Hill areas, served by the Broad River regional sewage system.
