DPU Narrows Milford Water Company Probe

April 27, 2010



The State Department of Public Utilities (DPU) has issued an interim ruling on the Town of Milford's request to probe the circumstances leading to last August's year's water contamination, saying that any request by the Milford Water Company to recover the costs associated with that contamination will be dealt with in the company's next rate hike request. The DPU said it would continue to investigate the town's compliant regarding the quality of the water and services provided by the privately-owned utility.

"We determine that the investigation in this case will examine the facts of the water contamination incident, including the Company's response thereto, its emergency response preparation generally, and any associated service quality issues. The investigation will not address the prudence or recovery of contamination-related costs as that issue can be best addressed in the Company's imminent rate case, if the Company seeks to recover such costs. In addition, this investigation will not... address the responsibility of the Company for contamination-related costs incurred by customers. Limiting the investigation in this way will appropriately conserve administrative resources while developing the factual context necessary to evaluate the recovery of any contamination-related costs should the Company seek to do so in its future rate case," DPU commissioners stated in their April 20 ruling.
