The state’s Office of Utility Consumer Counselor is encouraging Indiana American Water customers to comment on the pending rate hike affecting Muncie and other Indiana communities.
Most residential water customers will see a 6% rate increase.
The Muncie “Star Press” says the utility has seen a decline in water consumption as a result of water efficiency and conservation efforts.
Reports say the utility is also planning to fund improvement projects including a $12-million dollar investment to repair the century-old treatment plant in Muncie and $1-million in improvements to the dam at Prairie Creek Reservoir.
