The city of Yankton, South Dakota has several projects collectively related to a new waste water treatment plant and the improvement of a plant built decades ago. Two of the projects include a lift station to replace the existing ones and the outfall piping. City Manager, Amy Nelson, addressed the loan process for those projects and how they will affect Yankton resident’s waste water utility rates.

The rates will increase slightly to cover the cost of the projects.

The resolution to accept the new rates was passed by a 9-0 vote at Monday’s meeting.
