PUC to Investigate Rate Increase Request by PA-American Water Co.

puc_sealThe Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) recently voted to suspend and investigate a rate increase request by Pennsylvania- American Water Company (PAWC).

The Commission voted 5-0 to investigate the request for an annual revenue increase of approximately $107.9 million, or 16.4 percent.  The request is suspended for up to seven months and will be assigned to the Office of Administrative Law Judge for a recommended decision or settlement.  Under the company’s proposal, the average residential customer using 3,630 gallons per month would see a monthly increase of $9.49 from $55.63 to $65.12.

PAWC presently provides water and/or wastewater services to approximately 2.3 million people in Pennsylvania including many in our area.

    Is this a class action? My water rates have gotten completely out of hand.
