East Baton Rouge Parish residents will see an increase in their sewer bills beginning today.

For the last eight years, there's been a yearly, four percent increase in sewer bills.

The rate increases were approved by the Metro Council in 2003 to help pay for a $1.3 billion sewer improvement project forced by the federal government.

The average household will see a monthly increase of about a $1.50.
