BATON ROUGE - Along with the new year, East Baton Rouge Parish residents and businesses will see higher sewer fees in 2013.

Since Jan. 1, 2004, Mark LeBlanc, an assistant director for the city-parish Department of Public Works, says sewer fees have gone up 4 percent each year.

For an average household - which uses an average of 8,600 gallons of water per month - Leblanc says the sewer fee will go from $40.60 to $42.23 per month.

LeBlanc says there are 137,400 customers connected to the city-parish's sewer system, about 101,600 of whom are residential customers.
