Water and Wastewater Division
Welcome to the IURC’s Water/Wastewater Division webpage. Here you will find rate comparison data, utility tariffs, 30-day filings, lists of jurisdictional and withdrawn utilities, industry reports, national issues affecting Indiana, as well as administrative materials and forms for regulated utilities.
Our Water/Wastewater Division monitors and evaluates regulatory and policy initiatives as well as water utility performance for reliability and service quality. Additionally, the division reviews and analyzes water/sewer utility proceedings before the IURC. These proceedings can be complex, sometimes taking 12-18 months to complete, and may include such issues as rate changes (including general rate changes, distribution system improvement charges, and periodic trackers), certificates of territorial authority for not-for-profit and investor-owned utilities, mergers and acquisitions, service area matters, as well as conservation initiatives.

Administrative Materials and Forms
PLEASE NOTE: On March 22, 2016, Governor Mike Pence signed Senate Bill 347 into law. One provision of this law immediately repeals Ind. Code 8-1-30.5, which requires the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to collect from all water utilities data regarding use of water resources within Indiana. Effective immediately, utilities are no longer required to file the annual Water Utility Resource Report.
