  • Proposition Y provides for a revenue bond issue to finance a portion of Phase II of the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) Capital Improvement and Replacement Program for the purpose of upgrading the sewer system to meet federal and state environmental requirements. If Proposition Y passes, Phase II will be financed with a combination of bond and pay-as-you-go financing. If Proposition Y fails, the financing will be completely by pay-as-you-go, resulting in a higher rate increase.
