Public Service Commission Wants Water Company to Extend Quality Reports

The Public Service Commission’s Consumer Advocate Division wants the agency to continue requiring West Virginia American Water to submit quarterly reports on service quality.
A 2011 order issued by the PSC requires the company to submit the reports through the fourth quarter of 2013. The Consumer Advocate Division asked the PSC on Wednesday to continue the requirement until further notice.
The division’s motion cites a Jan. 9 chemical spill in Charleston that contaminated the water supply of 300,000 residents.
The 2011 order came in a case involving the water company’s staffing levels.
