Citizens Energy Group is seeking Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) approval to raise its rates and charges for water and sewer service. The requests are pending in separately docketed cases.

Water rate case

In a March 19, 2014 order, the IURC granted Citizens Energy Group a water rate increase of approximately 9 percent. By comparison, the utility had requested a 14.7 percent increase with the OUCC recommending limiting the increase to about 3 percent.
