BULLHEAD CITY — EPCOR Water Arizona Inc. is holding its second community meeting Wednesday to inform consumers of its proposed rate increase.
The meeting runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Mohave Community College Bullhead City campus, 3400 Highway 95.
The utility also held a community meeting in December to educate consumers on the proposed rate increase and why the company is supporting consolidation of 11 of its water districts into one.
EPCOR’s 11 Arizona districts include Bullhead City’s two districts, Mohave and North Mohave Valley, as well as Aqua Fria, Anthem, Chaparral, Havasu, Paradise Valley, Sun City, Sun City West, Tubac and Willow Valley.
In a previous rate case decision, the Arizona Corporation Commission, which regulates utility rates, ordered EPCOR Water Arizona to file a rate case for all of its systems no later than July 1, 2018, and to include consolidation options as opposed to treating all its water districts independently. In its application, EPCOR Water Arizona also proposes the consolidated districts transition over five years to a uniform rate.
For more information about the meeting, call EPCOR at 1-800-383-0834.
