BOISE – August 20, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The Idaho Public Utilities Commission is accepting a Falls Water Company application to extend its service territory in Bonneville County.
Falls Water serves an area adjacent to the City of Ammon’s municipal water system. Over the last 16 years, developers have built additional residences adjacent to the company’s original service areas. At the conclusion of the company’s last rate case in 2012, the commission directed Falls Water to amend its certificate to include subdivisions the utility is serving that were outside its assigned boundaries. At that time, the company was serving about 3,840 customers. Now it serves about 4,340 customers.
The City of Ammon and Falls Water have signed a Memorandum of Understanding delineating an agreed upon service boundary between the two systems.
Falls Water plans to provide service to the new areas through water mains and service lines installed by various developers using the company’s Main Extension Contract. Falls Water claims it has adequate water supply to provide service to the new area in a safe and reliable manner.
The commission’s final order, along with the company’s application and other documents, are available on the commission’s Website at www.puc.idaho.gov. Click on “Open Cases” under the “Water” heading and scroll down to Case No. FLS-W-15-01.
