PSC Approves Agreement in Liberty Utilities Water and Sewer Case

JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved an agreement which grants Liberty Utilities (Missouri Water) LLC d/b/a Liberty Utilities (Liberty) certificates of convenience and necessity (CCN) to install, own, acquire, operate and maintain water and sewer systems in Bolivar, Polk County, Missouri. These water and sewer systems are currently owned and/or operated by the City of Bolivar. As a part of this case, Liberty also sought approval of the transfer of those systems to Liberty. The agreement approves that transfer.

Liberty’s application stated that Bolivar’s voters approved the transfer and authorized a franchise agreement in an election on June 2, 2020.

Under the agreement approved, Liberty will adopt Bolivar’s existing rates for all of Bolivar’s customers.

The Commission approved the agreement determining the asset transfer is not detrimental to the public interest and that approval of the Liberty CCN application is “necessary or convenient for the public service”.

Liberty serves approximately 7,636 water customers and 638 sewer customers in Missouri. Bolivar currently provides service to approximately 4,690 water connections and 4,786 sewer connections.
