The City of Evansville and the OUCC have reached a settlement agreement in the City's pending water rate case. The IURC will consider the agreement in its deliberations and may approve, modify, or reject any settlement agreement filed before it.

New residential rates will be phased in if the agreement is approved, with monthly water charges for an in-city residential customer using 5,000 gallons per month to rise from $22.01 to $32.31. The City's original request would have raised that amount to $32.81. Testimony the OUCC filed on July 13, 2016 recommended limiting that amount to $31.34.These amounts include monthly fire protection surcharges.

Only the City's water rates are at issue in this case. State law does not give the IURC oversight of municipal sewer utility rates.

An IURC public field hearing was held in Evansville on May 25, 2016 with written consumer comments also invited. For more information, please see the OUCC's May 11, 2016 news release or the fact sheet distributed at the hearing.

An IURC settlement hearing is scheduled for September 23, 2016.
