New base rates for Indiana Water Service, Inc. (IWSI) - which serves customers in Merrillville - were approved on November 7, 2012.

In Cause No. 44097, the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) approved an increase of approximately $204,000 in the utility's annual revenues. IWSI and the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor (OUCC) agreed to this amount in a settlement filed on June 14, 2012.
