(Tariff Rule 19-A)

HUTTONSVILLE PUBLIC SERVICE DISTRICT – SEWER
CASE NO. 14-0590-PSD-19A

On April 14, 2014, Huttonsville Public Service District filed with the Public Service Commission an Application to increase its sewer rates. An interim rate increase of 17.52 percent was approved for use by the District on July 8, 2015. Commission Staff has recommended three sets of rates that will provide sufficient revenue for the District to repay a loan to its water utility and provide adequate cash working capital as mandated by Senate Bill No. 234. Staff recommended Step 1 rates implement a surcharge and will generate additional annual revenue of $126,591, or 23.28{4ceb532c6f579389df471c6c1e832caf2346b74dc60fcbf6aabd4d29df3baf9c}, over rates that were in effect prior to this case. Step 1 rates are to remain in effect for one year or until the loan is repaid to the water utility, whichever occurs. Staff-recommended Step 2 rates eliminate the surcharge and will generate additional annual revenue of $91,570, or 16.84{4ceb532c6f579389df471c6c1e832caf2346b74dc60fcbf6aabd4d29df3baf9c}, over rates that were in effect prior to this case. Step 1 and 2 rates provided additional revenue for the one-eighth cash working capital reserve and Step 3 rates eliminate the additional revenue for the one-eighth cash working capital reserve and will take effect July 9, 2017. Step 3 rates will generate additional annual revenue of $60,306, or 11.09{4ceb532c6f579389df471c6c1e832caf2346b74dc60fcbf6aabd4d29df3baf9c}, over rates that were in effect prior to this case.
