Tomahawk residents are paying more for their wastewater treatment. The average user will pay about a hundred dollars more each year in sewer bills.
The city of Tomahawk has approved a 25 percent sewer rate increase that went into effect January 1st. The extra money will help pay for upgrades to the city’s wastewater treatment plant, which dates back to the 1950s.
Public Works Director Mike Tolvstad says the first phase of the project began when the roof of the solid waste digester was found to be structurally unsound.
