Sewer overhaul could mean eventual 137% rate increase

The average Lexington sewer bill could jump 137 percent to $71 a month as the city increases fees to pay for a $540 million overhaul to its sanitary sewer system. The fixes are required because of a court agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which filed a lawsuit in 2006 over federal Clean Water Act violations.
