Milford Water Company Rate Increase Lowered Slightly

Attorney General Martha Coakley's office successfully argued that the Milford Water Company should not be reimbursed $91,354 for a prior rate case expense.

The rate increase awarded to the Milford Water Company this summer will be lowered slightly, through a successful appeal by the state Attorney General's office.

The Water Company will not receive reimbursement through rate payers for $91,354 in expense it declared for a previous rate case expense. The decision was made on Nov. 27 by the state Department of Public Utilities.

In an email to Milford Selectmen, announcing the decision, Town Counsel Gerald Moody said by his calculations the change will result in an effective rate increase for the Water Company of 50.8 percent, rather than the 54 percent rate increase initially allowed.

The Water Company had sought an increase of 83 percent, to cover construction of its new water treatment plant on Dilla Street.

Better but still ridiculous. We have to pay for their mistakes? Why haven't they been using their profit for the past 30 years to gradually update their buildings and systems as needed?
