PUBLIC NOTICE TO ALL CUSTOMERS OF THE
BRILLION MUNICIPAL WATER UTILITY
The Brillion Municipal Water Utility has filed an application with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) to increase water rates. The increase is necessary due to a 7.82 percent increase in gross plant investment since the last water rate case was completed in 2014. The water utility will also be losing a large industrial customer that accounted for approximately 27 percent of total water consumption and approximately 43 percent of the industrial class water sales.
The total increase in water revenues requested is $108,138 which will result in an estimated overall rate increase of 13.94 percent over the water utility’s present revenues. If the request is granted, the water bill for an average residential customer with a ⅝-inch or ¾-inch meter who uses 9,000 gallons of water per quarter will increase from $58.80 to $62.85, or 6.89% (not including the public fire protection charge), and will increase from $94.98 to $102.30, or 7.71% (including the public fire protection charge).
A telephonic public hearing on the application has been scheduled for Tuesday, November 28, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. in the Brillion City Hall, 130 Calumet Street, Brillion, Wisconsin. Scheduling questions regarding this hearing may be directed to the PSCW at (608) 266-3766.
