May 2016 Rate Increase

In the March 2016 PRCUA board meeting a rate increase was approved which affected most of our customers.  The new rate structure will go into effect May 1, 2016.  We have posted the new rates on our website and a copy is available at the PRCUA offices at 100 Street A Suite F, Picayune MS. 

Our last rate increase was in October 2010.  While we do not like to increase rates, it is sometimes necessary in order to properly maintain the water and wastewater systems.  Since the last rate increase we have finished the construction of new waste water treatment facilities in Picayune and Poplarville, sewer extension in Hide A Way Lake, started a major rehabilitation project in Picayune, and started an expansion of the Wildwood Lagoon capabilities, along with various other smaller projects affecting all our other remaining customers. 

As recommended by Mississippi Rural Water Association we review our rates every three to four years.  We enlist the services of an independent consultant to prepare the rate study.  In this rate increase the rates were adjusted to create as much equity as possible for all our customers.
