Dear Dear Cold Springs and Spanish Springs Customers,
Great Basin Water Co. (GBWC) is requesting that the Public Utility Commission of Nevada (PUCN) grant a rate increase that would become effective following consumer sessions, public hearings and scrutiny by the Commission.
While we acknowledge that there is never a good time to increase the rates we charge, it has been nearly 10 years since our last adjustment to the rates for your homes and businesses. Under the proposed new rates, safe and reliable water delivered to you will still cost less than a penny per gallon.
The company has made nearly $2.4 million in substantial investments since the last general rate case, in improving the system that serves you to ensure continued high levels of performance of the system now and in the future. For that reason, we must seek an increase in both the monthly base cost and the rate charged for water used.
Details of the rate increase are included in the notice below.
