SPU Files For Water Rate Adjustment

The Sun Prairie Utilities Commission has submitted an application June 19, 2019, with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) for authority to increase water rates.

Rates for general service will increase 3.0 percent. The increase is necessary to reduce the existing deficiency in present rates. This application is being made under Wis. Stat. 190.193. Rate increases granted by the PSCW under this statute do not require a public hearing.

The effect of the increase on some selected customers is shown below. Public fire protection rates will also increase 3.0 percent.
