If you’re a Missouri-American Water customer, your bill could be going up.
The Missouri Public Service Commission has set July 26 as the deadline to intervene and participate in a proposed rate increase by Missouri-American.
In a request for a rate increase filed on July 1 with the PSC, the company stated its intention to recover almost $770 million in completed or planned investments between January 2021 and May of next year.
The rate increase, if approved, could result in the amount paid by typical water customer (someone using 4,200 gallons a month) by almost $13 a month.
The bill for the typical wastewater customer would stay the same. Flat rate wastewater customers would see their monthly costs increase by $3 to 10 a month, depending on the service area in which they reside.
Applications to intervene and participate in these rate cases must be filed no later than July 22 with the secretary of the Missouri PSC, P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, MO 65102, or by using the Commission’s electronic filing and information system at www.psc.mo.gov
