Sewer and Water Rate Increase Recommendations

The Jefferson Parish Administration is proposing rate increases to begin in 2022 in order to help fund vital improvements to our aging water and sewer infrastructure. Without additional funding, the systems will no longer be able to provide the level of service that Jefferson Parish residents expect. This will be a vote by the Jefferson Parish Council, which will take place at the August 25th Council Meeting.

Jefferson Parish will host two informational sessions – on Tuesday, Aug. 17 at 6PM (2nd floor Yenni Council Chambers) and Wednesday, Aug. 18 at 6PM (2nd floor GGB Council Chambers) – for residents interested in additional information. Both sessions will also be streamed live on JPTV and JeffParish.TV/Live for residents who want to tune in virtually.
