Public Hearing Set on IN American Water Rate Case

Share this post

The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, or OUCC, continues to encourage written comments on Indiana American Water Company's request for a rate increase. 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. Customers can submit written comments at a hearing scheduled at Gary City Hall, at 6pm, on April 10th.
