To the residents of Senatobia: As most of you are aware by now, sewer rates for residences and businesses increased as of January 1, 2019. The city’s current Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) is at the end of its 30 year cycle. As mandated by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) we will be constructing a new Waste Water Treatment Plant at a cost of approximately $7M Dollars. Engineering Solutions, Inc. (ESI), our engineering firm handling this project, determined the rate increase necessary to fund this project. The new WWTP will be large enough to support anticipated industrial and residential growth. We are actively searching for grants to help fund this project and thank you for your understanding.
