OpenMSD: MSD's Financial Transparency Initiative
OpenMSD: Revenues
    Back to OpenMSD Home


The majority of MSD’s revenue is generated from fees charged to residential, commercial and industrial users of MSD’s sanitary and drainage systems. Other revenue is generated from interest earned on investments and miscellaneous sources. This section of the OpenMSD web site summarizes the amount of money MSD receives from all sources for each fiscal year of interest. All of MSD’s revenues are classified as being from drainage service charges, sewer service charges or other charges. Sewer and drainage service charges are then broken out whether they come from residential, commercial, industrial or other customer types. These categories and the Other category are further broken out to summarize the total of the actual transactions processed.

Sewer and drainage revenues are posted once a month and reflect what customers are billed, not what is actually received by MSD.

Frequently Asked Questions: (Click on the question to see the answer)

1. When do MSD rates have to be approved by Metro Council?
MSD’s rates must generate enough income to cover our projected operation and maintenance expenses, debt service expenses, and cash funded capital expenditures. In addition, MSD’s debt service coverage must be at least 110 percent and the working capital target is $25 million. So, only if a proposed budgeted rate increase is greater than seven percent, does MSD have to get approval from the Metro City Council for the rate increase.

2. Why can you not drill into the various customer types shown?
Revenues are coded as being related to sanitary sewer service, drainage services or other service charges. Drilling into the sewer service charges, for example, provides a further breakdown on our customer types. Any further drilling down would take you into an individual account. Considering there are over 230,000 individual accounts, it is not practical to get into that level of detail on this site. In addition, from a privacy standpoint access to an individual's account infotmation is prohibited.
