Dear members:

 In order to continue providing you with safe, clean drinking water your Board of Directors believes that a rate increase has become inevitable. This decision was reached only after months of expenses exceeding revenue. In February, an extensive Rate Study by the Louisiana Rural Water Association validated our concerns.

Since the last rate increase in 2010, all rural water systems have been placed under the regulatory authority of the Louisiana Public Service Commission, which requires the water system to hold a members meeting to formally announce the systems intention to raise rates prior to submitting the request for a rate increase. Accordingly, a members meeting to address the rate increase was scheduled  and held at 7 PM 16 June 2015 at Platt Elementary School on HWY 80 East, Haughton La.


The current rates are as follows:

 

Residential rate:  $20 Monthly minimum allowing 2000 gallons.  

                                    $4.75 per 1,000 gallons thereafter.

 

Trailer Court Rates $45 Monthly minimum allowing 15,000 gallons

                                     $5.00 per 1,000 gallons thereafter.

 

Commercial rate:  $45 Monthly minimum allowing 15,000 gallons

                                      $5.00 per 1,000 gallons thereafter.

Any rate increase must be forwarded to and approved by the Louisiana Public Service Commission prior to implementation.  This process will not start until after the June members meeting and approval could take as much as a year.
