    Aqua Pennsylvania files first rate request since 2011

    Aqua Pennsylvania Inc. filed an application with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission today, for the first time in nearly seven years, requesting an increase in water and wastewater rates for its customers. The primary reason for the request is the recovery of $2.2 billion it has invested in infrastructure, including upgrades to its distribution and treatment systems to improve drinking water quality and service reliability throughout its water and wastewater operations. The company’s request would increase a residential water bill for a typical customer using 4,080 gallons per month from $59.85 to $69.07, an increase of $9.22 a month (30 cents a day).
