Brian Water hearing is Aug. 3 in Boise


The Idaho Public Utilities Commission will conduct a rate hearing for the customers of Boise-based Brian Water Corporation on Wednesday, Aug. 3, in the commission hearing at 472 W. Washington St. in Boise. 


Brian Water serves about 46 households in the Warm Springs area of eastern Boise. It seeks to increase its monthly base rate from $12.50 to $18 for the first 4,000 gallons per month. The company’s last request for a rate increase was in 2007.  


Brian Water states that its nitrate levels exceed the federal maximum contamination level. In response, the company is considering a new, deeper well. The company also states that an increase in base rates would put the company’s rates more in line with other water systems. 


The purpose for the hearing is to hear the direct testimony of customers and interested public. The hearing will begin at 7 p.m. Testimony will be recorded and made part of the commission’s formal record for decision in this matter.
