PSC Approves Sale of Water System Assets
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a joint application filed by the Missouri-American Water Company (MAWC) and the Spokane Highlands Water Company (Spokane Highlands) which authorizes the sale of the water system assets of Spokane Highlands to MAWC.
“If the proposed sale and transfer is approved, those customers currently being served by Spokane Highlands will receive their water service from MAWC, which is fully qualified to own and operate the Spokane Highlands system and to provide safe and reliable water service,” said the Commission. “MAWC’s proposal to apply its existing water tariff and existing District #3 rates to customers in the Spokane Highlands service area is reasonable and will result in decreased water bills for those customers.”
Based upon the information provided in the joint application and the PSC Staff recommendation, the Commission finds that the proposed transfer of assets is not detrimental to the public interest and should be approved.
Spokane Highlands Water Company serves approximately 49 water customers in Christian County near Spokane, Missouri.
