PUC schedules Sept. 27 hearings on Columbia Water Co. rate increase request

Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission has scheduled two Sept. 27, 2017 hearings for public input on Columbia Water Company’s request to raise rates.

The company serves approximately 10,223 customers across seven Lancaster County municipalities — West Hempfield, Rapho, East Donegal and Manor townships and Columbia, Mountville and Marietta boroughs — as well as Hellam Township in York County.

The requested increase would raise average annual bills for residential customers who have meters from $299.48 to $452.04 in the Columbia Division and $318.48 to $452.04 in the Marietta Division, according to the commission.

The meetings will be held at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sept. 27 in Marietta Borough Hall, 111 East Market St., Marietta.

The commission encourages people to write out they are going to say beforehand and, if they would like to submit a written statement, to bring enough copies to give two to the court reporter and one to several other participants.

More information on the rate making process is available on the commission’s website, http://www.puc.pa.gov/
