The City of Evansville is seeking a water rate increase and financing authority in IURC Cause Number 45073.

To review the case file, please click here. Evansville filed its petition and testimony (Baldessari and Keepes) on March 29, 2018.

The OUCC filed testimony on July 20, 2018, recommending approval of about half of the city's request:

In this case, the city has proposed a three-phase increase that would raise the monthly residential water rate for 5,000 gallons from $32.54 to $48.40 in 2021, including fire protection charges. The OUCC's recommendations would set that amount at $40.44 in 2021.

All hearings in this case have concluded. Closing arguments, in writing, are due as follows:

  • September 24, 2018: Evansville proposed order
  • October 15, 2018: OUCC proposed order
  • October 26, 2018: Evansville reply brief

The OUCC issued a June 11, 2018 news release to invite consumer comments. An IURC public field hearing was held in Evansville on June 25, 2018.

Municipal sewer utilities are exempt from IURC oversight. Locally elected city and town councils approve their rates.



Evansville's current water rates received approval in October 2016.
