PSC Local Hearing On Missouri-American Water Rate Next Week

The Missouri Public Service Commission will hold a series of local public hearings around the state starting today (1/17) to receive customer comment in a water and sewer rate case filed by the Missouri-American Water Company.

There will be both in-person and virtual public hearings conducted by the Public Service Commission.

While today and tomorrow have nothing but virtual hearings, the first public in-person hearing is set for Thursday, January 19 in Joplin. The second in-person meeting is in northwest Missouri, coming up on Tuesday, January 24 in St. Joseph at the Blum Student Union on the campus of Missouri Western State University.

That hearing will start at 6:00 P.M., with a public information/question and answer session conducted by the PSC Staff, followed by the Commission receiving testimony from the public.

A third in-person meeting is being held January 25 in St. Louis and an additional virtual meeting is on January 26.

On July 1, 2022, Missouri-American Water filed water and sewer rate cases with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking to increase their annual water and sewer revenues by approximately $99.6 million, a 25.7% increase.

Missouri-American provides water service to approximately 474,000 customers and provides sewer service to approximately 16,500 customers in the state.
