American Suburban Utilities, Inc. (ASU) provides sewer service in Tippecanoe County. It is seeking a three-phase rate increase due to capital projects. If granted, the residential flat rate would eventually rise from $47.50 to $92.55 (under rebuttal testimony the utility filed on February 5, 2016). ASU's current rates took effect in 2000.

The OUCC recommends limiting the eventual increase to $55.22. For an overview of the following testimony, please see the OUCC's January 14, 2016 news release.

The OUCC issued an October 27, 2015 news release to invite consumer comments. An IURC public field hearing was held in West Lafayette on November 16, 2015.
