Illinois American Water filed their petition for approval of a general rate increase with the ICC in January 2024 to determine its water and sewer rates. Rate cases are formal proceedings used to address the costs of operating and maintaining the utility system, determine the total amount the utility is authorized to collect, and what share of that cost each customer class is responsible for.
