Kentucky-American Water requests surcharge on customers’ bill

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Kentucky-American Water Company filed an application with the Kentucky Public Service Commission will have a surcharge increase.

The company says it’s for additions to its tariff to include a Qualified Infrastructure Program (“QIP”) surcharge that would be applied to Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Other Public Authority, and Sales for Resale Service classifications for infrastructure replacement investments.

The surcharge would be calculated annually based on replacement costs, and applied to each customer’s monthly bill.

The surcharge would then be updated annually until the next rate case, at which time the investment costs would be incorporated into general rates and the surcharge set at zero.

Kentucky-American says if the increase is approved by the PSC, the average monthly bill for a residential customer would go up 71-cents. It would increase $4.01 a month for commercial customers and $82.98 a month for industrial customers.
