In Cause No. 41879, the Commissioners agreed that the increase is necessary to pay for capital improvements to the waterworks. Over the next five years the city will replace hydrants, water mains, and distribution lines. The utility will also switch to a Miox chlorination system.
Under the terms of the agreement, the Town of Culver will provide the Commission and the OUCC with a one-page summary of its progress on a semi-annual basis. The first such summary should be filed by January 7, 2002, updates should be filed every six months thereafter through July 2006 or completion of the project, whichever comes first.
