FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Aboite Township residents could end up paying almost 30 percent more in sewage rates soon.

Aqua Indiana has requested a 29.8 percent increase in sewage rates from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, according to the Journal Gazette.

Manager Jeff Gard tells the paper that if the Commission approves the request it’ll be phased in over two years, increasing the average customer’s bill to $55.77 for metered customers and almost $77 for unmetered customers.

The company also wants to charge a one-time $1,300 fee for new customers hooking up to their system.

About 13,000 customers would be affected.

Aqua doesn’t need our money. It shouldn’t have been left in charge of sewage in the first place when the water was switched to city water. We need to get rid of this company permanently. They continue to gauge the customers it still has, raising rates on people who have no alternative.
