Water company files rate increase request

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana American Water on Friday filed an application with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to adjust rates for water service in all of the company’s operating districts.

If approved as filed, the monthly impact in rates to the typical residential customer would be approximately $2.40 per month or 8 cents per day. The overall increase being requested is approximately 9.8 percent.

Indiana American Water’s ongoing infrastructure investments are the driver behind the rate request the company said. The company will have invested nearly $221 million statewide to enhance its water infrastructure between July 1, 2011 and Nov. 30, 2015. All these investments in local water infrastructure systems enhance service quality, reliability and fire protection for customers, while keeping the cost of water service for most local households their most affordable utility bill at about a penny per gallon, said the company in the news release.

The company last filed for new rates in May 2011 and received an order from the IURC in June 2012.

The net effect is a projected reduction in operating and maintenance cost of more than $7 million from 2010 to 2015, according to the company.
