The Kentucky Public Service Commission has granted Water Service Corp. of Kentucky permission to increase annual revenue from its Kentucky operations by about $473,000, or 29 percent, to about $2.1 million. The company had sought an increase of $807,000, or about 51 percent, to bring annual revenues to $2.47 million. In its application, Water Service said it needs additional revenue to pay for system improvements and modernization of its customer service and billing systems. Much of the proposed increase was for what Water Service described as the Kentucky customers’ share of company-wide computer system improvements. However, the PSC said that Water Service failed to meet its burden of proof that the indirect cost allocations were directly related to providing water service or would benefit Kentucky ratepayers. Water Service has about 7,300 residential customers in Hickman and Bell counties.
