MSD Rate Commission Public Hearings
Why join a Public Hearing? Public Hearings are opportunities for MSD customers to learn about proposed rate increases firsthand, ask questions of MSD staff, and provide feedback. For those who can't be there in person, we're bringing the meeting to you via Facebook Live. We urge all MSD customers to participate and “Let Your Voice Be Heard!”

What is the MSD Rate Commission?
Representing the voice of the people in MSD’s rate-setting process, the Rate Commission was established in 2000 following a decisive 70% approval vote from the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County. Designed to be independent from MSD staff, the Rate Commission directly employs the necessary legal, engineering, rate setting, public engagement, and other professional resources it needs to fulfill its voter-approved mandate.
The Rate Commission is composed of 15 diverse member organizations, reflecting our wide-ranging MSD customers and community. According to MSD’s voter-approved Charter, our process may take up to 165 days from the date MSD staff submits a rate proposal. During this time, we conduct multiple Technical Meetings where our legal, engineering, rate setting, and other experts call upon MSD staff and put their proposal under the microscope.
In March, MSD staff submitted a rate proposal to the MSD Rate Commission suggesting increases in wastewater rates and additional funding for stormwater services. While we review the technicalities of the proposal, we are equally focused on gathering public feedback through the Public Hearings. For a detailed view of the Rate Commission and the proposed rate increases, please visit msdprojectclear.org/ratecommission.
