STUDY: MMSD ECONOMIC IMPACT MORE THAN $218 MILLION ANNUALLY
Milwaukee 7 Study Finds Economic Output of Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District Totals More than $218 Million Annually
“The economic impacts of MMSD are significant, based on operational and capital expenditures, employment and wages and salaries,” said Milwaukee 7 Economic Research Director Bret Mayborne. MMSD directly supports 456 jobs with estimated wages and salaries of $28.8 million. Applying a standard multiplier effect to these factors, the total direct and indirect impact to the metro Milwaukee economy is $218.3 million with 1,368 jobs supported, generating $57.2 million in annual wages and salaries. The multipliers, as determined by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, account for dollars that are re-spent and re-circulated through the local economy.
