Indiana American Water seeks recovery for investment in infrastructure upgrades

Indiana American Water filed a petition Friday with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to adjust its rates for water service in the communities it serves across the state.

Indiana American Water’s ongoing infrastructure investments are the primary driver behind the request. The company is including more than $542 million of water infrastructure investments in its request. The investments are necessary to maintain and enhance service, water quality, system reliability, and fire protection capabilities for customers while keeping the cost of water service for most households their most affordable utility bill, at about a penny per gallon.
