MEDINA, OH (WOIO) -

Residents of Medina will soon be paying more for their H20.

Medina Mayor Dennis Hanwell said today customers will see a five percent increase in their rates starting August 1. The increase comes as a result of higher rates from the Avon Lake Municipal Utilities.

In order to balance the cost of operating Medina's city water system every day with the costs from Avon Lake, the mayor said a moderate increase in rates is necessary.

Hanwell said the money raised will cover several unanticipated capital improvements that the current budget can't fund.
