(KTVI) - Expect your sewer bills to increase in St. Louis City during the next few years. That's because of an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) settlement requiring the sewer district to repair raw sewage leaks into your rivers streams and basements.

It's going to cost $4.7 million over 23 years to rebuild the city's 80- to 120-year-old sewer system.

Mike Kelley with Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) explains that how much it will cost depends on how you vote next week on Proposition Y.
