PSC Sets Intervention Deadline In Missouri-American Water Company's ISRS Request
JEFFERSON CITY---The 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 between August and December 2012. The costs in this ISRS request are not currently in rates.
Under the filing, Missouri-American Water Company seeks an ISRS on residential customers in St. Louis County of an additional 0.1074 cents per CCf (per hundred cubic feet) or approximately 0.1436 cents per 1,000 gallons of water used. Combined with the previously approved ISRS, the approximate ISRS charge on a residential customer’s bill would be $0.1816 per CCF or $0.2428 per thousand gallons.
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.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than March 11, 2013, with the Secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102.
