Lead Staff Hammond, Greg (UTC)
Filed Date 03/28/2022
Effective Date 07/01/2022
Summary General rate increase request that, as initially proposed would have generated approximately $108,000 (32.1 percent) additional annual revenue for water service. Staff and the Company have agreed to a revised revenue requirement of approximately $80,000 (23.9 percent) in additional annual revenue. The company is combining the operations of the former Harrison-Ray Water Company, Harrison Water Company-Kiona, LLC, and Sunrise Acres Water Services, LLC water systems into a single tariff, utilizing single tariff rates. The requested increase is due to increases in contracted services, general operating, utility, and wage expenses. The company is also seeking to increase ancillary charges. The company provides regulated water service to approximately 483 customers in Benton and Walla Walla Counties. The most recent rate increases for the former Harrison-Ray Water Company and Harrison Water Company-Kiona systems was in 2008 and 2004, respectively. The former Sunrise Acres system has not changed rates since it became regulated in 2018.
