Hearing Cancelled

On October 30, 2017, Ridgecrest Water Utility (Ridgecrest) filed a request with the Commission to increase the prices for water utility service in Buncombe County.  Ridgecrest serves about 314 customers.  

Today, the base water charge (zero usage) for a residential customer is $16.98 bi-monthly; Ridgecrest is requesting permission to increase this base charge to $18.00 bi-monthly.  For a residential customer using 8,000 gallons of water every two months, the bi-monthly water bill would increase from $59.38 to $62.40.

On February 23, 2018, the Commission issued an Order Canceling Hearing and Requiring Customer Notice. That order is available here.
