Public Hearing for Possible Water Rate Hike


State officials want to hear what residents of the Iowa Quad Cities think about a possible increase in the cost of water. Wednesday night the Iowa Utilities Board will hold a "customer comment hearing" in Davenport on the rate hike requested by Iowa-American Water.

It begins at 5:30 pm at the River Center. 

In August, the company filed a request for an overall increase of nine per cent, including a 14  per cent increase in rates for residential customers.

The board held a public hearing in Clinton last week and after Wednesday night, will hold one more hearing, virtual only, next week (10/28).

The possible increase would affect 10,000 customers of Iowa-American Water in Clinton and 53,000 in the Iowa Quad Cities.

The utilities board has up to ten months to make a decision.
