Edwardsville Water Corporation, which serves customers in Floyd and Harrison Counties, has received IURC approval to raise rates and issue long-term debt.
The Commission's order approved a settlement agreement between the utility and the OUCC. It sets a new monthly residential water rate of $45.89 for 5,000 gallons.
The utility's original request would have raised the 5,000-gallon rate from $38.19 to $46.07. In testimony, the OUCC had recommended a rate of $45.57.
