PSC Sets Intervention Deadline in
Missouri-American Water Company Sewer Case

JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has established the deadline for those wishing to intervene and participate in a sewer application case filed by Missouri-American Water Company (MAWC).

MAWC seeks Commission authority to purchase substantially all of the sewer assets of the City of Trimble system as well as substantially all of the sewer assets of Centennial Acres Association, Inc. which is located in or near Trimble, Missouri (Clinton County). In addition, MAWC seeks Certificates of Convenience and Necessity to install, own, operate and maintain the sewer systems in those areas.

According to a PSC Staff (Staff) recommendation in the case, Staff and MAWC worked together to develop a proposed service area that is modified from that requested in the original application. The modified service area incorporates the current MAWC service areas of Timber Springs and Clinton Estates that are adjacent to the City of Trimble and Centennial Acres, as well as the 3-cell lagoon that is located in the southwest portion of the requested service area. The Staff recommendation states if approved, this combined service area will provide the opportunity to interconnect the systems.

Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than January 29, 2021, with the Secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102-0360, 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, email opcservice@opc.mo.gov) or the Public Service Commission Staff (P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102, telephone 1-800-392-4211, email pscinfo@psc.mo.gov). The Office of the Public Counsel is a separate state agency that represents the general public in matters before the Commission.

The City of Trimble currently provides sewer service to approximately 280 sewer accounts which are primarily residential customers. Centennial Acres Association, Inc. currently serves approximately 13 homes in a residential development area. MAWC provides water service to approximately 470,000 customers in Missouri.
