Community Utilities of Indiana is seeking new rates in IURC Cause No. 44724. The utility's service territories are:

  • Indiana Water Service, Inc. in Merrillville,
  • Twin Lakes Utilities, Inc. in Lakes of the Four Seasons, and
  • Water Service Company of Indiana, Inc. near Roselawn.

In its original request, Community Utilities sought to increase overall annual revenues for water and sewer service, respectively, by 50.1 percent and 30.7 percent. The OUCC recommended limiting the increases to 27.3 percent and 15.6 percent, respectively, in testimony filed in April 2016. In supplemental testimony filed in October 2016, the OUCC recommends limiting the water rate increase to 24 percent and limiting the sewer rate increase to 10.8 percent.

The Lakes of the Four Seasons' Property Owners' Association has intervened in this case.

All hearings in this case have concluded. Written closing arguments are due as follows:

  • March 17, 2017: Proposed order from Community Utilities
  • April 14, 2017: Proposed orders from the OUCC and LOFS Property Owners' Association
  • April 28, 2017: Reply brief from Community Utilities

The OUCC issued a February 25, 2016 news release to invite consumer comments.
