Utility Rate Increase due to EPA Requirements:
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has required Idaho municipalities to reduce the levels of oxygen demanding substances and total phosphorus in the treated effluent discharged into the Spokane River.  The lower levels of oxygen demanding substances and phosphorus will reduce the amount of algae growth currently present in the Lake Spokane reservoir.  The only way to reduce the level of oxygen substances and total phosphorus in treated effluent is to upgrade the City’s wastewater treatment plant to accommodate this mandate.  Failure to comply with the EPA requirements will result in a fine of approximately $1,000,000 per month until the mandate is meet.  J-U-B Engineers, Inc. has assisted the City of Post Falls to develop a multi-year strategy that will provide stable revenue to meet the total operating and capital costs of providing wastewater service.   JUB Sewer Financial Plan and Capitalization Fee excerpt w/ summarized annual revenue requirement.
