New rates for the City of Evansville's municipal water utility were approved on February 13, 2013.
Under the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission's (IURC's) order in Cause No. 44137, water rates will rise from $14.42 to $19.55 over the next three years for a residential customer using 700 cubic feet (approx. 5,200 gallons).
Sewer/wastewater rates and charges were not at issue in this case. State law does not give the IURC jurisdiction over municipal sewer utilities.
An IURC public field hearing was held on June 4, 2012 in Evansville. The OUCC issued a May 22, 2012 news release inviting consumer comments.
