Standard & Poor’s raised its standard long-term rating on DuPage County, Ill.’s Series 2003A and 2003B waterworks and sewerage net revenue bonds to AA-plus from AA, due to the maintenance of strong debt service coverage, which the county projects it will continue to maintain with the help of a recent rate increase. The outlook is stable.

At the same time, the rating agency assigned its AA-plus standard long-term rating to the county’s $7.82 million of Series 2008A and 2008B waterworks and sewerage project net revenue first-lien and second-lien bonds.
