Infrastructure Surcharge to Change for St. Louis County Customers
of Missouri-American Water Company
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved an agreement between the Missouri-American Water Company (MAWC), the Public Service Commission Staff and the Office of the Public Counsel which will change the infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) on the bills of MAWC’s St. Louis County customers. MAWC first established an ISRS on customer bills in St. Louis County in December 2003.
The ISRS adjustment reflects infrastructure replacement investments made by the company during the period April 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020. These costs are not currently included in MAWC’s rates.
Residential customers in the company’s St. Louis County service area currently pay an ISRS of approximately $0.96 per 1,000 gallons of water used. As a result of this case, the ISRS will be approximately $1.07 per 1,000 gallons of water used. The ISRS change is expected to take effect in December.
