Floyds Knobs Water Company rate case: Consumer comments invited

If you would like to comment on Floyds Knobs Water Company’s proposed rate increase, you have the chance to do so.

The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor (OUCC) is inviting written consumer comments on the utility’s request through September 12, 2018. The OUCC, the state agency representing consumer interests in cases before the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC), is scheduled to file its testimony and recommendations with the Commission on September 18, 2018.

The OUCC will use its legal and technical resources to review the utility’s request. In its September testimony, the OUCC will detail the results of its analysis.

Floyds Knobs Water Company’s current rates received IURC approval in 2014. Under its pending request, the monthly water bill for a residential customer using 5,000 gallons would rise from $41.40 to $50.25. The not-forprofit utility provides service to approximately 2,180 customers in Floyd County. It cites increased operating and maintenance costs along with debt service payments for prior infrastructure improvements in its filing with the IURC.
