The tax levy is the Capital Budget’s primary funding source. The majority of capital expenditures are for improvements and replacements of assets at the water reclamation facilities and in the conveyance system. The capital budget also funds watercourse and flood management projects, the private property infiltration and inflow reduction program, most of MMSD's green infrastructure work, and 2050 Facilities Plan projects.
User charges are the O&M Budget’s primary funding source. In addition to user charge billings, MMSD has other operating revenue sources. MMSD's second-largest O&M revenue source is from Milorganite® net revenue. The majority of overall expenditures in the O&M Budget include the operating contract with Veolia Water Milwaukee and energy expenditures at the water reclamation facilities. This budget also funds a significant level of machinery and equipment maintenance at the water reclamation facilities, some of the green infrastructure work, expanded information technology initiatives, marketing efforts for Milorganite®, and expenditures related to MMSD salaries, wages, and benefits.
