Water rate hike coming to Texarkana residents

    A rate hike on water and sewer bills will go into effect on October 1.

    City leaders from Arkansas and Texas have approved the rate hike, with annual increases for three years on the Arkansas side and 10 years on the Texas side. 

    The rate hike is expected to assist with infrastructure improvements including upgrades to the Millwood Treatment Plant and century-old water mains. 

    Arkansas residents will see an increase of 16% while Texas residents will see a 5% raise.
