The Los Alamos County Department of Public Utilities plans to propose and discuss a 35 percent residential sewer rate increase during a joint county council and board of public utilities work session Tuesday night in White Rock. 

Utilities Manager John Arrowsmith reports that sewer rates may have been held artificially low in the past.

Costs for maintenance have risen dramatically for Los Alamos’ aging sewer system.
