Thousands of local water bills are changing, with some going up and some going down depending on what community you live in.
After receiving state approval to raise rates, Indiana American Water Co. adjusted bills for its customers this summer.
Not everyone saw an increase. The company shifted its water rates to make residents who receive bills from the company pay less while residents who receive bills from their towns, which buy water from the company, pay more.
That means Greenwood and Franklin residents are seeing decreases in their bills, while Whiteland residents who receive water service through the town are seeing increases.
Indiana American Water Co. shifted its rates as part of a state-approved increase in the company’s revenue that will bring in an additional $1.95 million, spokesman Joe Loughmiller said. The utility company had asked for approval to increase revenue after spending millions on infrastructure projects in recent years.
