Eastern Bartholomew Water rate case
The IURC has approved a settlement agreement between Eastern Bartholomew Water Corporation and the OUCC in the utility's recent rate case. The agreement and supporting testimony were filed with the IURC on July 18, 2017:
Any settlement agreement before the IURC can be approved, modified, or denied. If the agreement is approved:
- Eastern Bartholomew Water will receive a two-phase increase of about half its original request.
- For a residential customer using 5,000 gallons per month, water charges will rise from $22.83 to $25.67 in the first phase. In the second phase, the charges will rise to $28.45. By comparison, the utility's original request would have increased the rate to $33.77.
- The utility is authorized to borrow up to $7.4 million in long-term financing to build a new water treatment plant.
