IOWA CITY (KWWL) - Water rates for the city of Iowa City will increase by five percent starting July 1.

According to the city, the increase is the second of a two-part increase implemented by the city council last year, in an effort to help cover costs of improvements and repairs to the city's water distribution system.

Over the course of the next three years, the city anticipates more than $3 million will be needed to replace aging water mains, and other system improvements.
