Water Rate Hike Request to Be Filed by Mid-October

The Milford Water Company plans to file a request with the state Department of Public Utilities (DPU) sometime between now and October 15 to increase its rates to pay for the new water treatment plant that the privately owned utility is building at its Dilla St. campus. The exact amount of the increase that will be sought had yet to be determined by early September, Manger David Condrey said.

Previous company estimates put the proposed increase in the 50 percent range, with the utility stating a goal of having the rate increase approved by the state regulatory agency by the time the treatment plant becomes operational in the late spring of 2013. On June 14 of this year, the DPU approved the Milford Water Company's request to borrow up to $20 million to build the new treatment plant.

Construction of the plant remains ahead of schedule, Condrey said. The construction schedule itself calls for the treatment plant to open one month before the deadline set by the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in the aftermath of the August, 2009 "boil water" contamination incident, he explained.
