Hawaii Public Utilities Commission Issues Rate Order to Reflect Infrastructure and Service Improvements

AWK

Decision supports reliable wastewater service

The Hawaii Public Utilities Commission has issued its order for Hawaii American Water to implement new rates for its Hawaii Kai customers. This is the first time Hawaii American Water has adjusted rates since 2011 and the updated rates are effective upon subsequent approval of final tariffs.

The new rates will provide approximately $1.7 million in additional annualized revenue and reflect the more than $32 million in investments to improve wastewater treatment and services that Hawaii American Water has made since 2011. Major projects have included the installation of ultraviolet disinfection treatment, a sludge de-watering facility, solar energy upgrades, upgrading pumps at its lift stations and treatment plant and other process improvements.

The typical increase for customers in single family homes will be $11.52. For the average single family customer monthly rates would increase from $67.08 to $78.60, for multi-family customers the cost for monthly service would increase from $57.08 to $66.88.

“This decision completes a vital process to sustain high-quality wastewater infrastructure and service,” said Lee Mansfield, Manager of Hawaii American Water. “We look forward to continuing to improve wastewater services for our Hawaii Kai customers.”
