Apple Valley Utilities
The IURC approved new base rates for Apple Valley Utilities, Inc. in April 2016. The utility provides service in southern Lake County.
Under the utility's original request, the flat, monthly residential water rate would have risen from $21.02 to $28.37. The flat, monthly residential sewer rate would have increased from $48.58 to $70.30.
The Commission's order requires the utility to address a number of operational issues the OUCC identified in its reports. It approves the OUCC's recommended monthly water rate of $25.72 while increasing the utility's sewer rate to $49.40.
