Pub Util-Water-Rates-Rights

Abstract

Amends the Public Utilities Act. Sets forth certain rights for water and sewer public utility customers. Requires a water or sewer public utility to file a tariff with the Illinois Commerce Commission, if requested to do so by a municipality, for metered water service used for building construction purposes. Requires the Commission to adopt rules to establish standards for subcontractors of for-profit water and sewer utilities. Requires the Commission to establish a formula for true-up charges that take into account certain conservation factors. Prohibits a water public utility from charging a customer during the time the customer's meter is malfunctioning and requires the utility to test a customer's meter under certain circumstances. Requires the Commission to hold public forums before any hearing on a rate increase with respect to a water or sewer public utility. Requires each water and sewer public utility to establish a unit rate, subject to review by the Commission, for customers with low usage rates. Requires a water or sewer utility to offer separate rates for water and sewer service to any commercial or residential customer who uses separate meters to measure each of those services. Requires the Commission to conduct at least 3 public forums throughout the State to evaluate the purpose and use of fire protection charges imposed by public utilities and to report its findings and recommendations to the General Assembly no later than the last day of the veto session in 2006. Effective immediately.
