FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Water rates are going up in Fort Wayne.
City council approved the rate hike Tuesday to pay for water main replacement.
The city currently has 350 miles of water mains that are past their useful life and many are failing.
This means water rates will go up an about $1.50 a month, for next five years.
The Indiana Regulatory Commission still has to approve the rate increase.
