INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A state agency is inviting consumers to voice their opinions on a rate increase requested by the Indiana American Water Company.

The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor represents consumer interests in cases handled by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission.

The utility says it's seeking the rate increase to help pay for numerous infrastructure improvements, including treatment plant projects and the replacement of aging water mains.

For most residential customers using 5,000 gallons per month, the monthly water bill would rise $2.60 to nearly $40.

The consumer agency plans to file testimony with utility regulators in May.

Indiana American provides service to about 290,000 customers throughout the state. It's a subsidiary of New Jersey-based American Water Inc.
