Comments Invited on IAWC's Rate Increase Request

Share this post

OUCC-Logo-
The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, or OUCC, is inviting written comments on Indiana American Water Company's request for a rate increase. According to its testimony and exhibits, Indiana American Water Company, or IAWC, is seeking the rate increase for several reasons including paying for numerous infrastructure projects which consist of replacing aging mains, treatment plant projects, storage tank renovation and more. The proposal would raise the average monthly water bill for customers using five-thousand gallons per month by two-dollars-40-cents, but in northwest Indiana, where customers are billed every two-months, the bi-monthly bill for ten-thousand gallons would rise by eleven-dollars-67-cents, equating to a monthly increase of five-dollars-84-cents.
The OUCC is currently reviewing the utility's request and has not yet taken a position. They anticipate completing its review by May 2nd. For more information click http://www.in.gov/oucc/2654.htm and a link for consumers who wish to submit written comments in this case, visit http://www.in.gov/oucc/2361.htm or by mail, email or fax:
