INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana American Water is asking for a nearly 17 percent rate increase to help pay for more than $542 million in infrastructure investments.

The recent request to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission says it would increase a residential customer's bill about $5.60 a month for a consumer using 4,000 gallons (15,142 liters) of water per month by July 2020.

The increase would go toward things like:

  • Upgraded water treatment facilities
  • Improving wells and pumping stations
  • Dealing with nearly 6,700 lead service lines
  • Building a solar energy project in Newburgh

The Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, which is Indiana's state consumer advocate, will review the request.
