Bloomington's municipal water utility, the OUCC, and Washington Township Water Authority have reached a settlement agreement in the city's rate case. The agreement is pending before the IURC; any settlement agreement filed with the Commission may be accepted, denied, or modified.
Under the agreement, the monthly water bill for a residential customer inside the city limits who uses 5,000 gallons would rise from $22.09 to $26.54 (as compared to $26.93 under the utility's initial request). The agreement would also allow the water utility to issue up to $4.6 million in long-term debt.

The OUCC issued a November 18 news release to invite consumer comments. An IURC public field hearing was held on November 29 in Bloomington.

Municipal sewer utilities are exempt from IURC oversight. Their rates are set by elected city and town councils.
The IURC approved Bloomington's current water rates in 2011.
