A. A Class D water
utility may apply for rate adjustments by means of the formal procedure
outlined in rules governing Class C water utilities or by following the
procedure prescribed below which is intended to reduce filing requirements to
shorten the time period between application and Commission Order. This
procedure assumes that the applicant has maintained adequate financial records
fully separated from any commonly owned enterprise and requires that the
applicant has on file with the Commission fully completed Annual Reports for
the immediate past year and for at least the two (2) prior years when the
applicant has been in existence that long.
B. It is contemplated that in most cases
Staff will be able to analyze the case and make its recommendation on the basis
of written materials submitted by the Company.
C. Such materials will consist of the last
three (3) Annual Reports, information contained in or supplied with the
application form, and information furnished in response to requests made to the
applicant by Commission Staff or intervenors.
