PSC Approves Water System Sale
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved an application which authorizes the sale of the Bilyeu Water Company (Bilyeu) water system to the Bilyeu Ridge Water Company (Bilyeu Ridge).
The Staff of the Missouri Public Service Commission recommended the application be approved in a filing made on February 1, 2013.
“The Commission may approve of a sale of a water company if that sale is not detrimental to the public interest,” the Commission said. Based on the verified pleadings, the Commission finds that granting the application for the sale of the water company would not be detrimental to the public interest.
The Bilyeu Water Company serves approximately 57 customers in an unincorporated area of Christian County, north of Highlandville, Missouri.
