During the 2012 legislative session, Senate Enrolled Act 132 (P.L. 87-2012) was enacted into law. This law explores water issues in the state of Indiana and requires the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) to collect specific data from water utilities, regardless of whether the water utility is currently regulated by the IURC.
Since the law went into effect, our agency has traveled throughout the state meeting with various agencies and organizations to explain what is required of the IURC and all water utilities operating in Indiana (i.e., investor-owned, municipally-owned, not-for-profit, cooperatively-owned, conservancy districts, and regional water districts). In short, our agency is required to collect water resource data so that it can be analyzed each year and included in our report to the Regulatory Flexibility Committee of the Indiana General Assembly.
Specifically, the law requires us to report on the following topics:
On December 4, 2012, our agency sent an initial letter to all water utilities detailing the IURC's role, the information required to be submitted, and how and when it should be completed. Due to the type and amount of information being collected, all utilities are being asked to submit the Water Utility Resource Report through the online form on the IURC's website. For instructions on how to file, please click here.
This data request is due by March 1, 2013.

The IURC anticipates a final report will be made available in Fall 2013, at which point the agency will present its annual report to the Regulatory Flexibility Committee.
