City water rates could be going up

January 11, 2010

Indianapolis water customers can weigh in on a planned water rate hike at public hearing Monday night. In September, the Department of Waterworks proposed a 35-percent rate hike to pay for a $110 million upgrade to the city's drinking water system. If approved, the rate increase would drive up residential water bills by an average of $6 a month. The hearing is set for 6 p.m. in the Broad Ripple High School auditorium.
