West Virginia American Water looks to improve infrastructure, issue related charge

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia American Water has filed an application to issue a distribution system improvement charge as part of next year’s infrastructure replacement program.

The average residential customer would see a charge increase of 6.14% or $1.95 a month.

The Public Service Commission of West Virginia will consider the request.
