PSC Sets Intervention Deadline in Missouri-American
Infrastructure System Replacement Surcharge (ISRS) Request
Missouri-American Water Company has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking to adjust the infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) on the bills of its St. Louis County
customers. Missouri-American first established an ISRS on customer bills in December 2003.
Missouri-American seeks the ISRS change to reflect infrastructure replacement investments made by the water company since February 2016. The costs in this ISRS request are not currently in rates.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than May 31, 2017, with the Secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102 or by using the Commission’s Electronic Filing and Information System (EFIS) at www.psc.mo.gov.
Individual citizens wishing to comment should contact either the Office of the Public Counsel (Governor Office Building, 200 Madison Street, Suite 650, P.O. Box 2230, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102-2230, telephone (866) 922-2959, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Public Service Commission Staff (P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102, telephone 1-800-392-4211, e-mail email@example.com). The Office of the Public Counsel is a separate state agency that represents the general public in matters before the Commission.
As a result of a rate case decision made on May 26, 2016, the ISRS for residential customers was re-set to zero. In its application, Missouri-American Water Company seeks to adjust the ISRS that residential customers pay to approximately $0.02 per 100 gallons of water used.
The infrastructure system replacements for which Missouri-American seeks ISRS recognition are either: 1) mains and associated valves and hydrants installed as replacements for existing facilities that have worn out or were in a deteriorated condition; or 2) a main cleaning and/or relining project; or 3) infrastructure facility relocations due to construction or improvements of a highway, road, street, public way or other public work required by or on behalf of the United States, the State of Missouri, a political subdivision of the State of Missouri, or another entity having the power of eminent domain.
