LRW Ordinances

The Little Rock Wastewater is regulated by ordinances. These ordinances are submitted by the Little Rock Wastewater Sewer Committee for approval by the City of Little Rock Board of Directors. Currently, LRW has three types of ordinances that pertain to public and private sewer services. Those ordinances are rate, general and pretreatment.
Rate Ordinance
The rate ordinance establishes the monthly sewer rates so that the rates are adequate to pay the principal and interest on sewer revenue bonds, to provide an adequate depreciation fund and to provide coverage on estimated cost of operating and maintaining the sewer system.

The Sewer Service Line Replacement Program ordinance establishes an additional monthly charge of $1.00 which shall used by the Sewer Committee to fund and maintain the program.

Pretreatment Ordinance
